The Bully in the Workplace! Emotional and Ethical Implications
According to Dr. Ruth Namie of the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI), “Work Shouldn’t Hurt”! Work should be a place where excellence and productivity are expected, but managers should not create or encourage hostile work environments that cause psychological harm to employees. However, the reality is that one in ten professionals will experience workplace bullying or abuse in their career (Workplace Bullying Institute, 2014).
This interactive training will help mental health participants understand the characteristics of workplace bullying. The legal, ethical and health implications of workplace bullying will be explored. Through videos and interactive discussions, participants will identify the characteristics of workplace bullying. Mental health professionals will learn how to differentiate between workplace bulling and a negative work environment.
Participants will learn various ways to help victims of workplace bullying in the counseling setting as well as how to assist organizations in handling this problem. (Trainer: Deidra A.

CQ: Raising your Cultural Intelligence in an Intolerant Society
According to Columbia University professor Derald Wing Sue, multicultural education that has a strong antiracist orientation is of utmost importance in helping children to develop a nonracist identity (2015). In an age of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and religiophobia, it is often difficult to reach a diverse clientele with true empathy and understanding.
This interactive training will help participants identify their personal privileges (we all have them), and assess their own cultural competence for improvement. This training will also help participants understand how culture and the media shape thoughts, perceptions and stereotypes about others. The participants will leave this training with a new understanding of how to reach their most diverse caseload with integrity, understanding and authenticity. (Trainer: Deidra A.
