Abstract

This study investigated the relationship between the demographic variables, teachers' occupational stress, and motivational stimulation (MS) of disabled pupils. The study was conducted with 118 teachers who worked at five institutes for special education in Duhok city in the north of Iraq. To determine the perspective of the study group, the questionnaire of “Occupational Stress” and the “Motivational Stimulation” was used. Analyzes were made using IBM SPSS 25.0 program. The data obtained from the scales were tested for normality. As a result of the normality test, it was decided to conduct parametric tests. To evaluate the effect of independent variables in terms of the dependent variable, parametric tests, which included “t-test” and “One-way Variance Analysis (ANOVA)”, were conducted. "Correlation Analysis" was conducted to reveal the level and significance of the relationship between the variables. Stepwise regression model was used for regression analysis. The results of this study, it was determined that there were statistically significant differences in the motivational stimulation (MS) according to the variables of years of experience, type of disability the teacher was dealing with, nature of job, relations with pupils, and the relations with parent (p<0.01). Furthermore, five multiple linear regression models were found to predict the variance in arousal motivation degrees through the variables studied in the study.
