Adult Bullying: Perpetrators and Victimsby Peter Randall
Synopses & Reviews
The frequency and severity of personal harrassment is a problem that is only just beginning to be uncovered. In Adult Bullying, psychologist Peter Randall uses the voices of both bullies and victims to reveal the misery that many adults endure.
He describes the processes that turn child bullies into adult bullies, often aware of their behaviour but unable to stop it. The workplace and the neighbourhood replace the playground, but the tactics and patterns of reward remain the same. The adult victim has little or no more power than the child counterpart, often changing jobs to escape the attentions of the bully. Similarly, managers like teachers, often fail to tackle the complaints of the victim with the seriousness the problem deserves, preferring to believe that the fuss is unwarranted.
Adult Bullying will be welcomed by managers, counsellors, social workers and anyone who has experienced personal harrassment. Effective ways to deal with bullying in the community and the workplace are discussed, with particular attention given to the implications for managers and employees.
Stating that as many as one in 15 adults are affected by bullying, this volume explores the problems associated with bullying, the reasons for them, and the characteristics of the two parties - bullies and victims. Case studies and interviews are included in the discussion.
Illustrated throughout with case studies and interviews, Peter Randall explores the problems associated with bullying, the reasons for them, and the characteristics of the two parties - bullies and victims.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 164-174) and index.
