As a society, people often treat each other as objects and opportunities rather than as human beings worthy of dignity and respect. It takes self-awareness to recognize that we have personal power to control our actions and reactions to people and situations. When almost every task is deemed urgent, past the deadline, or a mandate from management, courtesy is often the first casualty. One study found that 60% of employees believe that co-workers’ annoying behaviors negatively impact the workplace and, as a result, 40% reported that they are looking for new employment. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the definition of workplace and college campus bullying, along with learning ways to differentiate between bullying and harassment (sometimes a very fine line). You will learn about the recognized categories of workplace violence and the cost of supporting that workplace violence or bullying in the workplace and on college campuses. There will be discussion surrounding best practices to use when counseling those who are the target of bullying and methods or ways to incorporate civility (and anti-bullying) into your place of employ or college campus.
Objective - upon completion, participants should be able to:
1. List at least three recognized categories of workplace violence.
2. List at least three ways to distinguish bullying/abusive conduct in the workplace.
3. List at least three signs of being bullied.
4. List at least two areas of focus when working with a client who states they are being bullied.
