Abstract: From 24 various Schools of Palakkad, Ottapalam, Trissur and Cochin Districts in Kerala, 432 School Teachers were screened using Case Study Schedule (2009), Occupational Stress Index (Srivastava and Singh, 1981), Novaco Anger Inventory - Short Form (Novaco, 1994) and Mangal Teacher Adjustment Inventory - Short Form (Mangal, 1971), out of which 200 School Teachers with High Stress / High Anger / Low Adjustment were selected as the sample. Hundred School Teachers were randomly assigned to Experimental Group and hundred to Control Group. The psychological intervention called, Positive Therapy (Hemalatha, 2004) was given to all the School Teachers in the Experimental Group. All the four strategies of Positive Therapy namely, Relaxation Therapy, Counselling, Exercises and Behavioural Assignments were applied. Positive Therapy was given thrice a week, on alternate days, for two weeks. The duration of each session was one hour. Initially, the entire School Teachers had High Stress. But after the administration of Positive Therapy, for 2 weeks, the stress level was reduced to Moderate level. There was a significant decline in the mean stress from High to Moderate level, proving the efficacy of Positive Therapy in the management of stress. The anger level got reduced due to the effect of Positive Therapy among the Experimental Group School Teachers. The adjustment among the School Teachers was also successfully achieved due to the effect of Positive Therapy and it further helped the School Teachers to overcome their problems and to face it boldly and successfully.
