As you might expect, those who write books and articles about mobbing and bullying, and those who put up and maintain websites, have usually been targets of mobbing or bullying themselves. Professor Kenneth Westhues survived a mobbing campaign in the sociology department at Waterloo University. This led him to write and edit several books on mobbing published by the Edwin Mellen Press. Edwin Mellen was himself a mobbing target. Dr. Ruth Namie of the Workplace Bullying Institite was bullied by a supervisor and this led to her and her husband's passionate and enduring efforts against bullying. Anton Hout, creator of the Mobbing Canada website, describes the terror and dread he experienced in the workplace as a mobbing target. These ardent and expressive people let others know that they are not alone in their ordeal and that help and solace are available.
Aims to become a comprehensive guide to research literature on workplace mobbing. Begun in the spring of 2008 as a project of the research team on academic mobbing at the University of Waterloo, Canada. The team is led by Kenneth Westhues, Professor of Sociology. Direct all inquires to him by email or by post to K. Westhues, Department of Sociology, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario N2L3G1.
The Workplace Bullying Institute's original web presence started in the early 1990's. Drs. Gary and Ruth Namie had established unique, pro-employee advice at the Work Doctor website. At the time, the married couple had 30-years combined professional experiences culled from counseling, educating, training, and coaching people in the workplace. They are the most recognized individuals associated with bullying in the U.S.
