31 Jan Understanding and Treating the Targets of Workplace Bullying
Workplace bullying and harassment are workplace factors that can cause significant psychological harm and injury, and negatively affect workplace engagement, and productivity. About one in three people are bullied at work; in some industries, such as health, welfare, education and government and semi –government services, the figure is far higher, ranging from 25%, 50% to 97% (Duncan and Riley). Workplace bullying can attack anyone, in any career, at any level, within any organization, at any time.
Research suggest that current approaches to preventing bullying and harassment in Australian workplaces are having little effect. Self-reported bullying in Australia has decreased slightly in Australia but is still very high by international standards. Sexual harassment rates have increased and harassment by gender and race have increased significantly.
With the high prevalence of workplace bullying, it is very likely that you will have clients coming for help and therapy, in great numbers. Watch and participate in this fascinating and beautifully presented online course and equip yourself with practical strategies to empower all clients and/or employees to care for themselves when faced with bullying behaviours.

You will be able to help your clients build the necessary self-help strategies and resilience to effectively tackle the different stages of workplace bullying. This course will increase your awareness but it will also provide you with strategies.
