Review quote

This book makes for invaluable reading as it helps to build the necessary self-help strategies and resilience to effectively tackle the different stages of workplace bullying. -- Professor Mona O'Moore, Associate Professor in the School of Education Founder and Director of the Anti-Bullying Research and Resource Centre Trinity College, Dublin

Evelyn Field's stellar contribution to the field of workplace bullying is to pull from the research literature, from her practice as counsellor and therapist, and from her own hard experience, eminently practical lessons for how to respond to the problem in ways that actually make things better. She is too wise a lady to fall for panaceas or to pander to pipe dreams. She is attentive to evidence, sober and methodical. What is more, her prose sparkles with clarity and punch -- and for that reason, is genuinely helpful to people brutalised at work. -- Kenneth Westhues, PhD Professor Emeritus of Sociology & Legal Studies University of Waterloo, Canada

This is an important book, a sophisticated and comprehensive primer on managing workplace bullying, the next generation of books on this topic. This book moves beyond the victim perspective for those who have experienced bullying and provides sound advice for healing and rebuilding after bullying. If you have experienced workplace bullying and are struggling to recover, you must read this book. If you are an HR professional, you must consider this book your textbook. Even psychologists and other counselling professionals often fail to grasp the enormous impact of bullying behaviours or the skills required to defuse or reduce bullying behaviours. -- Pat Ferris, MSW, RSW, MSc, PhD Partner, Calgary Psychology Group, Canada

There are so many difficulties of living in our modern era due to terrorism, economic and natural disasters. At least we have a solution for making the quality of our life at the workplace better. This new book from Evelyn Field can really help us in coping with bullying at work. This is the first book I know which really teaches us and provides simple, useful strategies to help anyone block or cope with bullying behaviours. As in many areas of life, the essence of resilience at work is emotional wellbeing, effective communication skills and social support. -- Dan Zakay, Professor of Cognitive Psychology Head, Graduate Program in Organizational Development and Consulting The Inter-Disciplinary Center, Herzeliya, Israel
