In this episode Dr. Anna Baranowsky discusses the issue of bullying and harassment in the workplace. On a weekly basis 40% of Canadian workers experience bullying - it can happen in any workplace, even yours! Seemingly regular procedures become major dilemmas and erupting events that can leave individuals feeling alienated and in danger, leading to high degrees of stress. The toxic environment that it creates can have a serious impact on your mental and physical health as it propagates severe feelings of anxiety, depression and possibly even suicidal thoughts.
Just remember if you have a bully at your workplace and you are being targeted - you are not alone.
