Every manager, educator, clinician and student needs to read this book and examine themselves, their actions and workplace. Reading this book would enable each individual to gain insight and ensure they are part of the solution to the deplorable problem of workplace violence.

- Carolyn Hastie, AUS.



The Authors' original research was within the UK National Health Service (NHS). The NHS is the UK's largest employer and the world's 3rd largest non-military employer. The effects of bullying and perhaps more importantly the recommended solutions apply across all industries and workplaces.

This book appeals to everyone who has experienced workplace bullying and is interested in understanding, and improving, dysfunctional workplaces. Drawing upon their combined wealth of experience the authors conduct an intelligent and in-depth exploration into the causes and effects of a bullying culture in the workplace.

Their remarkable insights lead them to recommend practical steps that can be taken in any profession or industry for assessing risk and reducing the harmful effects. This book is an essential starting point for anyone attempting to understand how bullying cultures form among groups and in workplaces, what structures support them and what strategies are effective in addressing the issues and effecting lasting change.

Aggression, bullying, harassment and violence are increasingly common within healthcare. Based on pioneering research and the personal stories of midwives, this book examines the bullying culture that permeates every level of the UK National Health Service ( NHS). Bullying behaviours between peers and across the supervisory hierarchy are explored, and the harmful effects of bullying are discussed. 

The authors provide clear information on the law relating to intimidation and harassment in the workplace. They offer guidance for managers on how a culture of bullying can be acknowledged and addressed, and offer practical help for both bullies and their victims.
