Bully Blocking at Work: A self-help guide for employees and managers
By Evelyn M. Field.
No one goes to work to be humiliated, abused, ostracised, subjected to rumours, or assaulted. Yet this is the reality of a working day for more than one in six workers. Bullying causes billions of dollars in lost productivity, expensive mistakes, employee replacement costs, and health and welfare rehabilitation expenses. Most workplaces currently have few resources and systems to deal with the problem, leaving the victims to sink or swim, and the bullies to remain professionally incompetent. Few understand that bullying is not tough management or an aggressive personality trait to be suffered. Severe and unremitting bullying catapults the victim into such a damaging emotional state that it can lead to the breakdown of their very survival mechanisms.

Bully Blocking at Work reveals for the first time the true evil nature of workplace bullying, helping the reader to understand its toxic, destructive impact on all employees - whether they are targets, bullies or onlookers - and provides advice for coping and confronting bullying, from both a personal and organisational perspective.

Bully Blocking at Work is a self-help guide for readers to understand and confront bullying within their workplace. Appropriate for reference at any stage, before, during or after bullying, it provides a research-based, balanced and comprehensive approach which focuses upon respect and responsibility for all concerned and deals with both prevention and treatment. It features a range of real-life stories, humour, questionnaires, cartoons, sample retorts and useful quotations to guide the reader to a positive outcome.
