Product Description

From Amazon

Is it you? Are you really just too sensitive to harsh words on the job? Or is it abuse? The authors share personal experiences and walk you through defining the problem, developing a remedy and placing this type of abuse into the larger social context. The workbook format allows you to objectively view your situation and to take appropriate action. Stop feeling powerless; stop feeling as if there must be something wrong with you.

From Library Journal

What exactly is emotional abuse at work? After reading this book you can name it and take active steps to deal with it. The authors--Nicarthy ( Getting Free , LJ 8/82); Naomi Gottlieb, a social work professor; and Sandra Coffman, a psychologist--define this problem through vivid accounts of the experiences of women of all races, classes, and sexual orientations. An abuse of power from managers and co-workers includes name-calling, invasion of privacy, public humiliation, and harassment. Women who have excused, hidden, or accepted such abuse are asked to evaluate their work situation and themselves to discover why they tolerate abuse in the workplace and possibly at home. Ways to confront abuse include organizing co-workers, initiating personal note-taking for legal action, and informing personnel and higher-level managers. This book motivates and informs women of their rights and power in the workplace. Highly recommended.

HASH(0xa71048e8) out of 5 stars Excellent resource for reporting abuse in the workplace June 12 2009
By Donna M. Leahy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As I am experiencing bullying from my supervisor in a medical clinic, this has been an excellent guide to understanding and pointing out subtle behaviors that are reportable to the EEOC. I also recommend this book as I teach nursing students and this is still an ongoing behavior in hospitals and clinics. Abuse still happens with doctors and nurses.

HASH(0xa6a00c48) out of 5 stars Bullies at work June 13 2010

I am a practicing attorney and handle human rights cases. I purchased this book to help me understand the subtle methods of sexual abuse in the workplace from the standpoint of women. I found the book to be instructional and of great assistance to help me to recognize such things as an ongoing "grooming" type of behavior by bosses who prey on subordinates for sexual favors; and the limited ability of women to even identify and deal with flattery and differentiate it from sexual advances.The book helps all who read it come to grips with what is called an hostile work environment.
