Surviving workplace bullying is an intensely stressful and threatening experience for targets of this form of abuse. An ongoing stress reaction occurs in targets in response to ongoing aggressive behavior. Specifically the target starts producing large amounts of the stress hormones. These hormones prepare targets to rally to protect themselves by either confronting, escaping or becoming immobilized in the face of the stressor. This is also known as the ‘fight, flight or freeze’ response. When targets can’t escape the chronic stress of repeated bullying, they cannot discharge this cumulative stress, making it hard to rebound physically or psychologically.
Stress can then become ‘trapped’ in the body and mind of the target, leading to trauma-like symptoms, such as intense fear, anxiety, depression, insomnia, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, difficulty concentrating, irritability, loss of confidence and low self-worth. Some targets of bullying also begin to lose perspective, and come to believe that they somehow invited or deserve this abuse. Many targets of bullying are unaware of the extent of their psychological distress, or wait until their symptoms become severe before seeking help. This can potentially make recovery harder, longer, complicated or incomplete. The good news is that you can take action today to move beyond the harm of workplace bullying.
