WBI Research: Offsetting the Pain from Workplace Bullying

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

OFFSETTING THE PAIN FROM WORKPLACE BULLYING
WBI 2013-I Instant Poll

The empirical research literature on workplace bullying clearly demonstrates the painful impact on recipients, targets. The stress-related physical and psychological health consequences are more extreme than effects of other types of workplace harassment. Thanks to recent advances in neuroscience, we know the effects of psychosocial stressors like interpersonal bullying activate pain pathways in the brain. That is, bullying literally causes pain.

This single-question survey asked bullied targets to describe how they chose to offset the pain.

WBI Study: First-Time Abusers in Bullied Targets’ Lives

Monday, July 1st, 2013


FIRST-TIME ABUSERS IN BULLIED TARGETS’ LIVES
WBI 2013-H Instant Poll

Prior life experiences play a role in the depth of emotional injury that bullying can cause a person. Individuals who have never been abused in their lives may take longer to recognize that they are actually being bullied. Without memories or repressed cognitive representations of being the victim of abuse, bullying is a completely novel experience. Learning begins when first targeted for the first time in their lives.

Targets with prior brushes with abuse in their lives do not necessarily risk being targets of workplace bullying. However, when targeted, emotional memories are quickly triggered and those targets are subject to re-traumatization. The levels of emotional pain, shame and distress are much more severe than for individuals experiencing abuse for the first time as an adult in the workplace.

This single-question survey sought to ascertain what percentage of bullied targets were recipients of abusive conduct for the first time in their lives and who are the perpetrators.

WBI Study: Mental health professionals & Workplace Bullying

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013


MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS’
GRASP OF WORKPLACE BULLYING
WBI 2013-E Instant Poll

Individuals targeted for bullying have trouble being believed. At work, many of the disbelievers have the incentive to blame the victim, either to bolster their own sense of power or to distance themselves from the pain associated with an empathic response. Prior WBI research (WBI-2011-IP-L) confirms that family and friends are the primary sources of emotional support.

Prior WBI research (WBI-2012-IP-D) also found that over 70% of bullied targets reported seeking treatment from a mental health professional. An understanding therapist is essential for effective treatment. Misunderstanding, or ignorance about, the impact of abusive mistreatment at work can lead to an improper diagnosis and ineffective treatment. At worst, a therapist who does not understand the effects a toxic work environment can have on individual clients, may overestimate the target-client’s ability to reverse her or his fate. An effective therapist will be familiar with trauma and can best characterize the bullied target’s experience as a response to violence.
