At the end of the day, whether an employer or employee, we all want to leave work safe and well so we can enjoy time with our family and friends. Workplace bullying is a risk to your health and safety that can have debilitating physical and psychological impacts. It comes with legal obligations that requires everyone to be responsible for a safe workplace.
Yet, many of us are at a loss at what we can do when we are the targets, or are witnessing, workplace bullying behaviours. You will learn the basics of bullying and strategies that you can use to manage workplace bullying regardless of your position in the organisation.
This course is suitable for psychologists, counsellors, social workers, mediators and educators.
In this workshop you will learn:
Legal and behavioural definitions of bullying
The impact of bullying in the workplace on you, other employees, clients and the organisation
The reasons that bullying occurs
Practical strategies for managing or preventing bullying when it happens to you or others in the workplace.
