Linda R. Crockett MSW, RSW of the Alberta Bullying Recovery, Resources, Research Centre will be at the IAWP speaking on workplace bullying this year at the IAWP conference.
It is well known that workplace bullying is associated with a host of psychological problems ranging from distress to complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and suicide, as well as serious physical problems such as gastric or musculoskeletal problems. Many who suffer a serious impact of workplace bullying are unable to work. Mental health treatment professionals have recognized bullying as a psychosocial stressor that can be difficult to treat. Numerous international conferences are dedicated to understanding all aspects of workplace bullying including discussions focused on the theoretical and neurobiological underpinnings of this injury.
Linda’s presentation and practice is based on over 25 years of experience, as well as research and knowledge gained from conferences, publications, wisdom sharing, and discussions with her international colleagues. This opportunity provides information for addressing workplace bullying appropriately: early intervention, assessment tools, recommendations for treatment/rehabilitation practices, and the goal of long term success for all parties.
