Psychological harassment has a negative impact on a person’s psychological well-being.

Victims of psychological harassment often feel put down and belittled on a personal level, a professional level or both.

The damage to a victim’s psychological well-being often creates a domino effect, impacting their physical health, social life and work life.

Psychological harassment in the workplace might look like:

  • Isolating or denying the victim’s presence
  • Belittling or trivializing the victim’s thoughts
  • Discrediting or spreading rumors about the victim
  • Opposing or challenging everything the victim says
