The Bully at Work: Stop Being Hurt, Reclaim Your Dignity, 2nd edition
By Gary Namie, Ph.D. and Ruth Namie, Ph.D.
If you are bullied at work or want to understand more about this silent epidemic, you’ll want this book. You’ll learn that women and men are equally likely to be bullies, and women are more likely to be targets than men. You’ll learn that, overwhelmingly, bullies are likely to be supervisors rather than co-workers. And you’ll learn just exactly what constitutes bullying. But, most important, victims will learn how to combat it, not blame themselves; stop hurting and keep a job that would be OK – if you didn’t have to contend with a bullying jerk.
The Bully at Work offers clearly defined, understandable tactics to deal with bullies and improve your situation. It is an invaluable aid to both targets of bullying and those who want to help those targets. The authors teach you personal strategies to identify allies, build your confidence, and stand up to your tormenter – or, if you have to, decide when to walk away with your sanity and dignity intact.
This 2009 second edition includes the detailed report of the first-ever scientific U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey. It also updates the legislative campaign for and information about the Healthy Workplace Bill, and describes the "bullying trial" that earned the attention of the Indiana Supreme Court in 2008.
Gary and Ruth Namie’s expertise on workplace bullying has been featured in such media outlets as CNN, PBS, NPR, USA Today and the Washington Post. 333 pages paperback
