Bullying in the Workplace: Implications for Work and Consequences for Mental Disorders

Dr Peter Miller, Psychiatrist, conducted a lunchtime presentation as part of our final instalment of our Winter Series on Bullying in the Workplace: Implications for Work and Consequences for Mental Disorders at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart.

Prevalence of alleged bullying in referrals for a psychiatric IME was shared based on Dr Miller’s own experience with over a third qualifying. Prevention and early response was discussed from formal HR policies and procedures to training staff to “call it out”. Dr Miller also explained the difficulties in relation to bullying versus underperformance in the workers compensation setting and also provided a list of common diagnoses post bullying.

Positive feedback was given at the end of this event by attendees, with comments such as:

“Dr Miller is very skilled in his area”

“Really informative”

“Great seminar – thank you”

“Very interesting presentation”
