This web seminar is based on the 2017 Aging in America Conference (AIA) workshop “Workplace Bullying: Supporting Mental Health Professionals in Their Work With Aging Targets.”

This seminar will address identifying and defining workplace bullying, understanding its impact and developing ways to address and prevent it. The work of a mental health professional can be isolating. It sometimes seems as if we have few opportunities to share our experiences and knowledge with other helping professionals. Enhance your current counseling toolbox by joining us to share ideas and interventions through case studies.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify and define workplace bullying;
  • List characteristics of targets, bystanders and bullies;
  • Discuss the effects of workplace bullying and what to do about it; and,
  • Access relevant resources.
