The purpose of this study was to identify predictors influencing relational self and negative thinking on coping among teachers working with students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). METHODS: A cross sectional study design was conducted with 212 teachers in six elementary schools located in D and C cities. Data were analyzed using t test, one way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficients, and stepwise regression analysis with SPSS 18.0. RESULTS: The significant predictive factor for the active coping type was perceived support in relational self. Empathy care was as a significant factor for the passive coping type. Relationship avoidance and agency were significant predictive factors for negative coping with ADHD students. Active and passive coping had significant negative correlations with social worry. Significant factors for positive coping were attendance at ADHD workshops and number of years of teaching. CONCLUSION: Results suggest that it is important to focus on teachers having a positive aspect in the classroom, using new strategies, and understanding their own inner factors of perceived support and empathy care in order to provide positive coping and enhance relationships with ADHD students. To further enhance positive coping and perceived support and to reduce social worry, teachers should use community resources, especially psychiatric health nurses.
