Workplace Trauma

No one deserves to be treated badly at work. Unfortunately, workplace bullying is all too common. Though it can take many forms, bullying can be broadly defined as any behavior that is intended to mistreat or harm another person.

 

Workplace bullying can cause serious psychological pain. If you are being bullied at work, you may experience anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and other health issues. You may also feel isolated, helpless, and hopeless. It can even be traumatic and when the trauma is untreated it can lead to anger, despair and resentment.

 

Workplace bullying can take many forms, from overt aggression to more subtle forms of mistreatment, such as gaslighting and condescending behavior. If you are being bullied, it is important to reach out for help. Talk to a trusted friend, family member, or therapist. There are also many organizations that can help, such as the Workplace Bullying Institute.

Our therapists can help you improve communication, conflict resolution skills and assertiveness skills.
