Workplace Bullying University: Training professionals for mastery

Since 2008, WBI founders have periodically offered intensive, interactive, small-group training for mental health counselors, human resources professionals, attorneys, trainers and consultants. All have sought to either establish a new practice or expand an existing one to include a specialization in workplace bullying. It is a 3-day training called Workplace Bullying University. Sessions are held in Bellingham, Washington.

The next University is June 15-17 for general professional audiences.

WBI’s University has been compared to graduate-level seminars. Participants receive an extensive set of supplementary resources: a set of discs containing more than 40 hours of audio and video to supplement ongoing education and material necessary to enhance graduates’ presentations, ready-to-go slideshows, audio CDs of seminars, webinars, interviews, educational podcasts, advice from guest experts, bullying-related songs, audio training, and video DVDs, and a collection of research articles upon which the University is based.

Graduates typically rave about University, “This is the best training I have attended in my 22 years of being a union advocate.” “I can’t say enough about the level of expertise that Gary and Ruth possess. They are on top of the latest legal, organizational, and psychological information….For mental health professionals: You owe it to yourself and your clients to attend this training.” “This was a unique and remarkable intellectual and personal experience … a jam-packed, soup-to-nuts curriculum … a very, very substantive program… extensive research and commentary … plenty of time for discussion … with a chance to share our interests, stories, and experiences … bonds form quickly and ideas begin to hatch” “They have it all: academic expertise, practical experience, warm and engaging conversational style and that indefinable sense of grace. Quite simply Gary & Ruth are the Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers of workplace bullying!”

Registration for Workplace Bullying University is limited to small numbers. Contact 360-656-6630 for details or visit the University website.

Note: This is NOT an introduction to the topic or simple overview. It is an in-depth exploration of a very complex phenomenon taught by scientists using scientific evidence as the basis for understanding.
