Bullying is not only harmful for individuals, but it also negatively impacts co-workers and the entire organization. Effective responses to bullying need to address both its impacts and root causes, while also holding perpetrators of bullying accountable for their actions. This workshop explores restorative processes that move beyond attitudes and responses to bullying that rely solely on isolation and punishment. Participants will develop the skills needed to put a stop to bullying behaviour, while also strengthening individuals and groups to prevent future harm.
