Book Description

Recent reports suggest that violence in the workplace is an increasingly common problem for organizations, and that violence -or the threat of it- is one of the major sources of stress at work. Work-Related Violence examines the causes and consequences of violence at work, and offers practical solutions for managers and organizational psychology professionals. Part one reviews the size and scope of the problem and sets out the need for intervention and policy. Part two provides case studies of organizations and settings in which such an approach has been applied.
