Dangerous Workplaces: Workplace Bullying Exposed!
FROM THE FOREWORD:
There are many excellent books that deal with the issue of bullying at school, but not so many that address the traumatic issue of workplace bullying. This is one offering that, I trust, will help sufferers, and their families, to understand what this is about and what is does to an individual. Having been the Victim, or Target, of workplace bullying on three occasions, I know the damage it can do to you. My wife and family also had to live with the destructive effects of this unacceptable workplace behaviour. It nearly destroyed me. My health had a serious breakdown, and I was under psychiatric care for eighteen months. My psychiatrist was on the verge of admitting to psychaitric hospital under the Mental Health Act for my own safety, because I had become suicidal.
I was then working as a lecturer in further and higher education, and took the opportunity to do my M.Ed. degree. I researched the reality of 'workplace bullying'; which I did, and succesfully achieved my Masters. I provided support services for the Victims of this antisocial behaviour, ran information and training classes for employers and also for post-graduate students in Education.
This book highlights the nature of workplace bullying, and does so for one very good reason: once Victims get a handle on what has been done to them, they are better able to cope with the trauma. It is the 'not knowing' aspect of what is going on that really annoys. Once you know what you are dealing with, you are better equiped to address it, because you then know what it is you are experiencing.
A number of really innovative angles on workplace bullying have been identified by me from of my academic research. These include viewing workplace bullying in term of 'rape' and 'abortion.' Never heard this before? Well, read on and get the picture. Other equally powerful pictures are used to expose the true nature of workplace bullying.
As you read this book, you will come to discover what the workplace bully really is like, and the type of person the Target, or Victim, is.
This book has the twin advantages of coming from painful personal experience and being based on solid academic research. Both together make a formidable team. I hope you benefit from reading and studying it, and get the understanding and relief you need.
