Literature of the last couple of decades has studied the phenomenon of workplace bullying extensively. Researchers have approached the subject from a range of aspects, including characteristics of the behaviour. Some have applied the theory of moral disengagement to their efforts to gain a better understanding of the workplace-bullying phenomenon.
The theoretical discussion in this book examines workplace bullying from the perspective of moral disengagement theory. The author qualitatively analyzes seven different categories of workplace bullying for the manner in which they might be mapped to the eight mechanisms of moral disengagement. The goal? To initiate a discussion around mapping workplace bullying behaviours to the mechanisms of moral disengagement. Continued study in this subject area may produce a list of qualitative descriptions that would perhaps allow the development of a global perspective of the phenomenon of workplace bullying. There may be, for example, some rationalisations (and thus specific mechanisms of moral disengagement) that are more predominant than others and that could facilitate the development of effective intervention measures in the workplace.
