Since 1998, it has been my pleasure to work with Drs. Gary and Ruth Namie, who have spearheaded the anti-bullying movement in the United States. They founded the Campaign Against Workplace Bullying, which later evolved into the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI), a leading source of public education and innovative programming that serves as their primary vehicle for raising awareness about bullying at work.
Last year, Gary and Ruth launched “WBI University,” an intensive, three-day training session, taught in a small-group tutorial format, for individuals in fields such as mental health, education, and advocacy who want to understand the phenomenon of workplace bullying:
In this personal immersion program you will receive graduate-level knowledge of the workplace bullying phenomenon. . . . You will learn to customize the components for your personal needs. After completion of this course, you will be able to deliver a research-driven presentation introducing Workplace Bullying to a variety of audiences — public or business groups.
The next WBI University is scheduled for June 19-21. For information, go to: http://workplacebullying.org/wbiuniversity.html.
