Murfreesboro Post: Workplace bullying unfortunately all to common

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

It has become a truism of this recession that workers who are stuck in jobs where they are not paid enough, mistreated, overworked or just plain bored have few options in today’s tight job market.

If people have had it up to their chins with all the crap dished out on them at work, they might be in a financial position to retire earlier or live in a house with only one working spouse if Obamacare can handle their health insurance needs. They might even be in a position to find a better job, or, at least, to take more time trying to find one.

Mother Nature Network: 1 in 3 Workers Victim of Workplace Bullying

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Bullying isn’t just a problem for middle school and high school students; bullying behavior continues into adulthood and is a concern in the workplace.

By Melissa Hincha-Ownby

Bullying is a major problem in schools across the country but if you thought that bullying ended once school ended, think again. Bullying behavior continues after adolescence and into adulthood, and workplace bullying is equally concerning. While there are many programs available to help educators stop bullying in schools, there are few resources available to businesses. However, the increased awareness of workplace bullying is helping bring about change as states are beginning to look at anti-bullying laws as a way to curb the issue.

Counseling Today article featuring Jessi Eden Brown

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Here is an excerpt of the Counseling Today article by Lynne Shallcross entitled Grown-up bullying. WBI coach Jessi Eden Brown, MS, LMHC, contributed to the section about bullying in the workplace:


Unfortunately, graduating from college still doesn’t guarantee an end to bullying. A 2010 survey commissioned by the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI) found that 35 percent of the U.S. workforce — an estimated 53.5 million Americans — report being bullied at work. An additional 15 percent said they had witnessed co-workers being bullied.

These statistics are all too familiar to Jessi Eden Brown, who serves as WBI’s administrator and also runs a private counseling practice in the Seattle area. About half of her clients deal with issues related to workplace bullying.

Province: B.C. government employees get new agreement to combat the bullying in their midst

Friday, January 4th, 2013

By Michael Smyth, The Province

The nightmare at work started with one manager taking a personal dislike to her and nitpicking everything she did — from the way she dressed to the “irritating” tone of her voice.

Other managers joined in and discipline notes were placed on her personnel file, for things like talking to her son on the phone during work hours. Her son is autistic.

But the worst phase of the office bullying began when her own co-workers started to isolate and harass her. At a staff Christmas party, she was given a card with sexual content that suggested she slept with all the men in the office.

Everyone laughed, and she tried to laugh, too. But, on the inside, she was in despair.
