PhD Title: Problems surrounding the understanding of inappropriate behaviour in the workplace in Malaysia- health care service

Summary of Project: The aim of this research is to examine the nature and causes of workplace harassment, bullying and mobbing in Malaysia. The research intends also to consider the role that identity may play in harassment and bullying. Anecdotal information would suggest that the problem is seemingly rife but it is rarely discussed openly. Research to date has tended to focus only on personal well-being of alleged victims including stress, anxiety, insomnia, long working hours, depression, burnout etc. This focus has meant that the aetiology of harassment, bullying and mobbing in Malaysia is not well understood, inlcuding its dispersal, causes and impact.
