As violence and abusiveness become increasingly prevalent in our schools and workplaces, our sense of safety suffers a heavy toll. Aggression in Organizations: Violence, Abuse, and Harassment at Work and in Schools presents a wide range of research, perspectives, and approaches to violence and abuse at work and in school. Respected authorities discuss practical strategies that foster a sense of safety, dignity, growth, creativity, and social support in every organization. Topics include:* the quantitative and qualitative methods that document the long-term effects of trauma and the effectiveness of interventions * the role of perceptions in gauging workplace hostility * a personality test to identify an aggressive personality * the role of organizational frustration in forming aggressive behaviors * the effects of a teacher's emotional abuse of a student * two forms of workplace abuse, "bullying" and "mobbing" * and many more!

Case studies illustrate examples that bring the latest empirical and applied research into clear focus. Insights are revealed into what can be done to prevent a future filled with violence as well as guidelines for treating people affected by aggressive acts. Each chapter is well-referenced and many include helpful diagrams and tables to enhance clarity.
