Exploring cyberbullying at work.
I AM a researcher with the Healthy Work Group at Massey University's School of Management. As part of my PhD project, I am interested in exploring nurses' and nursing students' experiences of workplace cyberbullying in New Zealand, with the aim of contributing toward its management and intervention. For this study, I am looking for participants who are currently working or training in nursing in New Zealand, and who believe they have experienced workplace cyberbullying at any time in their role.
Cyberbullying involves unwanted aggressive behaviours that may harm, threaten, demoralise or embarrass the person on the receiving end. This can occur through a range of electronic media, including text and instant messages, emails, social media, blogs and public web forums.
Workplace cyberbullying can occur outside the workplace and after hours.
Participation will involve a 30-minute interview, conducted either in person or by phone (or Skype), at a time convenient to the participant. Your identity, and that of your workplace and any other individuals involved, will remain anonymous, and any information you provide is confidential.
To share your experiences or ask further questions, please email me at N.J.D'Souza@ massey.ac.nz or phone 021 175 7444.
