Mobbing in the Context of a Woman's Life
Keywords: workplace mobbing, mobbing in academe
AbstractThis article describes the traumatic experience of a target of workplace mobbing in the context of one strong, mature, and resilient woman's life. Whereas personal stories can easily get lost in statistical surveys and theoretical treasties, this description of one woman's experience stands to deepen our understanding of the consequences of mobbing. This article is a product of the Research Program on Academic Mobbing at the University of Waterloo, Canada, under the direction of Kenneth Westhues, Professor of Sociology.
