Get ready for WBI Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week: Oct 19-25

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Freedom From Workplace Bullies WeekFreedom Week is a chance to break through the shame and silence that shrouds workplace bullying. No one asks to be targeted, to be dominated, to be humiliated. The psychological assaults harm the person’s health and the health and well being of families, too.

Bullying at work is most like the phenomenon of domestic violence. [October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month.] It is abuse where the abuser is on the payroll. Coworkers and employers notoriously ignore it. Through their indifference, they tacitly support and encourage it. Employers suffer no consequences because workplace bullying is not yet illegal in the U.S.

Freedom Week is a time to be daring and bold. Do something!

Tell WBI what you have planned and we will announce it here at the website.

Visit the Freedom Week site to learn what different groups can do.

Social workers against workplace bullying

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Conference was treated to a presentation on workplace bullying by WBI Affiliates Linda R. Crockett and Sherri Tanchack. Both are Canadian pioneers leading the group — Social Workers Against Bullying.

Linda and Sherri recognize both the importance of clinicians treating bullied patients to (1) understand the work environment as causing the harm from workplace bullying and (2) the necessity of therapists hurt by bullying to heal so as to help others. If you are a social worker in Canada or the U.S., contact them. We met Linda and Sherri at Workplace Bullying University.

Here are the two along with their co-presenter at NASW, Dr. Tracy Whitaker, and the new NASW president, Dr. Darrell P. Wheeler.

Help fund a good documentary

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

We help documentary film makers by participating in their films. One successful documentary was Murder By Proxy.

Filmmakers Sheila Dvorak and Jay Galione, produced Gone Postal: The Documentary. Jay’s father’s experience as a proud postal worker watching the destruction by politicians of the USPS inspired the film. We met Jay and Sheila when they filmed our reaction to the manufactured crises in the Postal Service.

Let’s all help fund completion of this worthy project on Indiegogo. (WBI supporters generously funded the 2014 US Workplace Bullying Survey on Indiegogo.) Please help these filmmakers.

Visit the Gone Postal website | Visit the Indiegogo fund raising page

A dedicated educator passes — Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt (1945 – 2014)

At South Sacramento Hospital beloved mother and educator Vernetta Rosemary Northcutt passed early evening on June 3, after a valiant two plus year battle against pancreatic cancer. Her son Will and oldest nephew Robert whom loved her dearly, were with her throughout her final hours.

She moved to Elk Grove eight years ago after living in Vallejo, where she was known and respected for over 20 years as a teacher in the VUSD, spending the vast majority of her 25 plus year educational career with the VUSD as a Vallejo High School teacher. Loved and appreciated by a great number of her students, Ms. Northcutt was well known for her devotion to teaching students to reach beyond their potential and be all that they could be using well developed educational tools and creative methods.

She also fought to reclaim the dignity denied her by that same school district. Read the story of her travails here.

A memorial for her past students and close friends will be held on July 27 at the Vallejo (CA) Community Center on 225 Amador St. between the hours of 3 and 8 p.m.

If you are interested in assisting with the memorial in any way please contact her son Will Flynn at AnubanUT2@gmail.com or any member of the Ruth Love family.

Thanks to all that truly cared about her and treated her with the respect she deserved. Let us rejoice, for she is truly at peace in the company of the Lord.

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

The only comprehensive, research-based training for professionals in the phenomenon of workplace bullying, WBI’s University® is next offered June 20-22 in Bellingham, WA.

The program, launched in 2008 by Drs. Ruth and Gary Namie, covers all aspects of adult bullying in the workplace while engaging participants in lively interaction and debates. This is a unique program that prepares professionals to specialize in bullying, to add that specialization to their existing repertoire of services.

Companies and unions can send representatives who then take back all the materials and resources necessary to start an internal anti-bullying initiative. Attendees become the trainers of others back home.

Tuition has been reduced and there are deeper discounts for organizations that send a second person.

Visit the Workplace Bullying University website for details, testimonials, location and pricing. Join us in June. Seats are limited for this small-group session.

For employers who have purged destructive workplace bullies

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

It is a rare occurrence that bullies are the ones punished with negative consequences for their actions (targets report 2 to 11% rate, according to different WBI studies). Much more likely, bullied targets are punished with job loss (78% as reported by targets, 61% as the public believes) and transfers.

However, thanks to rising public awareness of workplace bullying, more bullies are being banished from sites where they caused incredible harm.

To those employers: Congratulations.

Just because the major stressor is gone does not mean the emotional distress will clear itself automatically with the passage of time. Recognize that both bullied targets, the direct recipients of the abuse, as well as witnessing coworkers were affected.

Remarkably, some managers now show concern for those still hurting (anxiety, depression, PTSD) after the bully is no longer around. The calls to us compelled us to create a service called — Workplace Bullying Recovery Day. Its goal is to validate affected work team members whose shared experience was painful, whether contact with the source of distress was direct or vicarious. Trust in a safe, secure workplace and loyalty to the employer were shattered. Recovery Day can help restore the sense of safety and trust in the employer.

The incredibly fee for the service is our way of thanking good employers for doing the right thing for workers who survived the bullying experience.

Read the details about the Workplace Bullying Recovery Day.
