Is That Really Harassment?
The training explores the negative consequences of harassment, covering such topics as age, race, sexual orientation, political affiliation, pregnancy, ethnicity, and sexual harassment. Participants will learn the definition of harassing behavior and the various types of harassment through the use of personalized stories, legal and policy definitions, group activities, and discussion. Participants will also learn about relevant University policies and what to do if they are harassed.
The training is a common site of interpersonal conflict. Some conflict is a natural outgrowth of interpersonal differences; other conflict is a result of repeated behavior meant to intimidate, degrade, or offend others. Workplace bullying creates feelings of defenselessness and robs individuals of their right to respect and dignity at work. This training will define bullying behavior, its causes and effects, and resources available to those who experience it.
