"Time to rethink 'the bully' in bullying?"

After over 25 years’ worth of research and active interventions, workplace bullying remains highly problematic, and this event poses the question: is this because we’re missing a key part of the puzzle – an adequate understanding of ‘the bully’?

This conference will explore how we currently understand and treat ‘bullies’ and what changes we need to make to more effectively tackle workplace bullying.

The conference is for academics and practitioners with an interest in workplace bullying.

The programme consists of a combination of key note speakers, panel sessions and workshops. It will be a fantastic opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners from across specialisms and countries to learn and share experiences and ideas.

The event is sponsored by the International Association on Workplace Bullying and Harassment (IAWBH).
