Bullying: From Backyard to Boardroom
Federation Press, 2001 - Aggressiveness - 146 pages
Bullying doesn't stop at school. Adult life creates its own pressures, particularly in the workplace. Some people habitually, some occasionally, use inappropriate means to achieve their ends. Always there are victims-at work, in clubs, in families-and their numbers seem to be increasing. Research shows bullying to be astonishingly widespread and with high human and financial costs. For example, research indicates that between 25% and 50% of workers are likely to experience workplace bullying at some point during their career, and that 40% of those frequently bullied have been driven to contemplate suicide. Bullying: From Backyard to Boardroom describes and explains the modern phenomenon of bullying, providing valuable insight into the scale of the problem and the many ways and settings in which bullying occurs in Australia. It shows that bullying is always the personal behaviour choice of the bully, but an organisation's choice of structure and culture also impacts upon the incidence of bullying. The book shows how bullies thrive in some organisations and wilt in others. It contains moves and means to counter bullying, including policies, management strategies and legal remedies. Bullying: From Backyard to Boardroom is written in a clear and concise style. It is a practical book based on current research and the best theoretical frameworks. It is a useful resource for professionals who need to address bullying, for those experiencing bullying, and for those providing support to someone being bullied.

ALASKA IS A PRIME PLACE FOR BULLYING ON A COMMUNITY WIDE STATE WIDE FRONT. WHOLE COMMUNITIES PICK ON A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL LITTLE BY LITTLE BY LITTLE UNTIL IT BECOMES SO WIDESPREAD AND SO HORRIFIC. CHURCHES POLICE EVERYONE IS INVOLVED AND IF THE PERSON FIGHTS BACK THE SINGLE INDIVIDUAL IS MOWED DOWN BY THE COWARDLY HOARDES OF ALASKAN COMMUNITY THUGS . SO WHERE IS GOD IN ALL OF THIS CERTAINLY NOT IN THE CHURCHES OF THE TARGETTED PERSONS COMMUNITY NO NOT THERE, DOES GOD RESIDE ANY WHERE ELSE NO GOD DOES NOT SHOW HIMSELF IN ANY OF THESE SO CALLED CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES OF ALASKA. ALASKAN THUGS ARE AS NUMEROUS AS COCKROACHES AND TWICE AS UGLY. SO IF YOU WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE AND HARMONY , PICK SOMEWHERE ELSE BECAUSE ALASKA IS NOT THE WONDERFUL PLACE THAT YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT. ALASKA IS THE ARM PIT OF AMERICA.
