Workplace bullying and health – what does the empirical data say and how can we understand the etiology of bullying related health effects?
Despite that behavior at work is regulated by laws and societal norms people often interact without prioritizing the welfare of others. In work settings, the neglect of other people’s welfare may take the form of bullying.
Being bullied implies being repeatedly exposed to negative acts (eg, name-calling, threats, physical aggression, and social isolation) over a longer period of time.
In this seminar we address the relationship between bullying at work and various health outcomes. Specifically, we take a closer look on what the scientific evidence say and how researchers understand the etiology of bullying related health effects.
