Terms and Conditions

Your use of this web site is subject to the following terms and conditions. By accessing this web site, you acknowledge that you have read and do accept these terms and conditions.


This website contains information, suggestions, and opinions about improving the quality of people's lives from the authors. The use, misuse, understanding, or misunderstanding of the material, in whole or part, is the sole responsibility of the reader.

All images, graphics and content are copyright the Workplace Bullying Institute and their individual owners. Do not copy, use or distribute without explicit written permission.

Neither the publisher nor authors assume responsibility or liability, jointly or individually, to any person, group, organization, or entity regarding any emotional or material loss, damage, or injury caused or alleged to be caused directly or indirectly by the information contained in this website. The authors do not represent themselves as licensed psychologists or mental health professionals. Readers are advised to use this material in a safe and logical manner. In some cases, this material is most effective when used in conjunction with professional legal and/or counseling services.

The Workplace Bullying Institute services are not to be construed as the "practice of psychology" as defined by various State regulations. If you or your company seek psychological services, you must contract with individuals licensed to practice psychology -- to obtain testing, diagnosis, psychotherapy -- in your state. The Workplace Bullying Institute does business consulting only to correct and prevent workplace bullying.

The Workplace Bullying Institute does not conduct psychological measurement, assessement or evaluation by means of psychological, neuropsychological or psychoeducational testing. Nor do we diagnose or treat mental, emotional or behavioral disorders or psychological aspects of illness, injury or disability. We do not conduct counseling or psychotherapy, as defined by extant state regulations. Local licensed mental health professionals should be contacted, if required.

Both Dr. Gary Namie and Dr. Ruth Namie have earned doctorates in psychology from accredited universities. However, neither has a current license to practice psychology. They are business consultants. With this Disclaimer, they explicitly represent themselves to NOT be licensed psychologists.

The Workplace Bullying Institute and the individual consultants are not responsible for the misuse or mischaracterization of their professional qualifications. This Disclaimer makes it clear that the person who misrepresents the facts contained in this Disclaimer is responsible, not the Drs. Namie.
