Workshop Content

Dealing with what is often a sensitive topic for individuals, this workshop aims to provide people with a safe and confidential environment to learn more about bullying and harassment and how to deal with such situations.

A mixture of information provision and discussion, the workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to share and explore their experiences as part of the learning process as well as work on individual challenges through group exercises. However, nobody is obliged to share their experiences and will be equally welcome to listen and observe if they find this more helpful.

The session includes an overview of the issues relating to bullying and harassment including:

  • The conditions that make bullying and harassment possible
  • The purpose, values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviour that bullies display
  • Why bullies make their choices and what makes them maintain their behaviour
  • Exploration of methods to help break the pattern of bullying.

Who should attend?

Freelances who want to find out more about bullying and harassment and how they can deal with these problems if they arise.

Expected learning outcomes

  • A greater awareness of what bullying and harassment entails
  • A better understanding of how to deal with this situation including actions that you can take and where to get further help.

Tutor: Anne-Marie Quigg (author of Bullying in the Arts).

POLITE REQUEST: if you are successful in obtaining a place on this workshop and, due to unforeseen circumstances, you are unable to attend, please let us know asap because we have others on the waiting list who we can allocate your place to. If you do not let us know this will disadvantage another member. Also, we may lose the funds that enable us to provide these workshops to all members including yourself.

NOTE: if we were to postpone or cancel this workshop due to unforeseen circumstances (this has happened only twice in five years due to tutor illness and a tube strike), we will be unable to reimburse any costs such as pre-booked travel expenses. If this were to happen in the future, we will email and telephone you as soon as we know that there is a cancellation and attempt to re-schedule the workshop asap.
