Bullying and Harassment
Our Anti-Bullying Seminars are designed for the Workplace Schools, Academies and Colleges
Personal-Safety-Training offer anti-Bullying seminars for workplace bullying. The seminar can be for an individual member of staff who requires re-training, or a group of individuals where workplace bullying has been identified as an issue.
Bullying may be the cause of absence, and can lead to a number of conditions such as depression, loss of appetite, anxiety, inability to sleep, loss of confidence and self esteem, increased alcohol consumption, withdrawn and anti-social, to name but a few.
Bullying can be:
Verbal: name calling, abuse, teasing
Physical: pushing, striking, kicking, damage to personal property and belongings
Indirect: spreading horrible stories, exclusion from groups, spreading rumours
Cyberbullying: nasty text messaging, email, social media posts, sharing photos on forums, websites and instant messages
Manipulative: where a person is controlling someone
Conditional: where periods of friendliness are alternated with episodes of bullying
Exploitative: where features of a persons condition are used to bully them
In the workplace, verbal and indirect bullying can be a factor, and in manual employment physical bullying is more common.
In schools, research shows that girls are more likely to suffer from verbal and indirect bullying up to the age of 16. Boys generally suffer more physical abuse, the threat of violence and actual violence. Those with learning difficulties are particularly vulnerable to being bullied.
