Abstract

Having learnt about the prevalence, behaviours and impacts of Workplace Bullying, the field is currently moving to focus more on interventions that prevent and manage the phenomenon. Rather than presenting evidence on particular interventions, this chapter introduces a framework that outlines the role of academics and practitioners in advancing this area of research, arguing that only collaboration and the sharing of expertise and perspectives will enable us to improve the design, delivery and refinement of interventions or programmes. Collaboration and the need for different perspectives are vital due to the complexity of the phenomenon. By focusing on scientific principles, the logic underpinning action is strengthened and will help inform the development of emergent practice. Fortunately, the field of Workplace Bullying can learn the lessons of academics and practitioners in the fields of Prevention Science and Implementation Science and the disciplines of Public Health and Human Services. Paying attention to these lessons and building upon their principles can assist in advancing how we in the field of Workplace Bullying respond to this phenomenon, either through prevention or management. This chapter presents an approach to intervention research, including concepts and principles from the fields of Prevention Science and Implementation Science that will guide both academics and practitioners as we move into the latest frontier of Workplace Bullying research.
