Cyber-bullying has been labelled the greatest threat to teenagers because of the way it leaves the victims with no place to hide. It is a growing problem in Australia with about one in 10 teenagers experience some sort of bullying, using technology.
Workplace bullying is now also being addressed Federally with Minister Bill Shorten currently considering the recommendations of a parliamentary inquiry. The House of Representatives Committee Inquiry introduced the terms of reference by saying "Workplace bullying can have a profound effect on all aspects of a person’s health as well as their work and family life. It also has significant flow‐on effects for the community and the economy, with the Productivity Commission estimating the total cost of workplace bullying in Australia at between $6 billion and $36 billion annually".
The conference streams will address School, Cyber and Workplace Bullying, If you would like to speak at the conference “call for abstracts” has now opened here.
