In This interview, NoBullying.com Founder Ciaran Connolly talks to Pamela Garber on the issue of Workplace bullying and adult bullying. Pamela Garber earned her Master’s degree from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas. She has a strong background in helping clients to successfully work through Family of Origin issues, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Addictive Behaviors, Eating Disorders and Career Counseling.
According to Garber, bullying in the workplace is now becoming a normal fixture of daily life, “The other thing is, and with all of that I see that bullying happens in venues where you wouldn’t expect it. It would be one thing for bullying to take place on a social level outside of work but now it’s become the norm for office politics and it has taken place with people at the level where it’s not age appropriate. They are behaving like reality TV character in places where you wouldn’t expect this to be the norm from government to corporations.”
And on whether bullying takes a real toll on a person emotionally, Garber said “We are literally taxed but also emotionally taxed and so the reserves are low, lower than normal and because of that, with the families needing a dual income to survive and all of that. So, the reserves are lower and therefore they are more susceptible to scars and attacks from that level as far it is getting with the person definitely. I mean trauma is trauma and it could escalate of course to violence in the work place and even not to minimize emotional assaults. Absolutely! It could stay with the person.”
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said “Pamela Garber breaks down the phenomena of workplace bullying and corporate bullying like no other, bullying is no longer just in school but it reaches everyone everywhere.”
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
