Gary and Ruth Namie: An Interview by Bob Morris

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Gary Namie (Ph.D., Social Psychology) and Ruth Namie (Ph.D., Clinical Psychology) started the U.S. workplace bullying movement in mid-1997 after Ruth’s personal experience at the hands of a tyrannical woman supervisor in a psychiatry clinic.

The Drs. Namie began the first and only U.S. research, education, advocacy and consulting organization — the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI, workplacebullying.org) now in Bellingham, Washington. Their current books areThe Bullying-Free Workplace (2011, Wiley) for employers and The Bully At Work (2009, Sourcebooks) for bullied individuals. WBI regularly conducts research, including the scientific 2010 & 2007 U.S. Workplace Bullying Surveys and online large sample studies. As the go-to experts, WBI has been featured on U.S. and Canadian network and local TV, national and local newspapers, business magazines and radio, with nearly 1,000 interviews.

New WBI Coach to join team

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

We proudly announce that a licensed mental health counselor is joining the WBI staff to offer coaching for bullied targets. Prior to this, Dr. Namie, not a clinical psychologist or therapist, was able to offer strategic advice without being able to help on more vexing emotional matters. He will still be available for expert witness and high-level strategizing. But for individuals overwhelmed by the emotional morass of early-stage bullying or the effects of prolonged exposure to workplace stress, we offer telephone coaching/counseling by Jessi Brown, MS, LMHC, LPC. We plan to offer her telephone services one day per week starting in December. That day has not been determined yet. You can request a 55 min. session with Ms. Brown via e-mail (info at workplacebullying dot org)  and we will contact you to select a convenient time. INTRODUCTORY RATE of $50 (US) per hour.
