Evelyn Field is an international expert in managing school and workplace bullying. She answers the big question, “Help, I am being bullied! How can I block the bullying myself when others don’t?”
I believe that everyone survives better when they belong to their social tribe or support network. However, many people don’t have the skills and strategies to socialise and build relationships while dealing simultaneously with difficult, dodgy people. I am also interested in the damage caused by bullying and finding the most appropriate treatment. Building social and emotional resilience, as well as dealing with school and workplace bullying, is my major interest when working with children and adults either individually or with the relevant organisations.
Bully Busting has been published in Italian, Croatian, Arabic, and Bully Blocking in Korean and Czechoslovakian. They are also published in the UK and USA. My new book, Bully Blocking at Work is also being published overseas. I also write for local newspapers and have had chapters in some Australian books.
Improving social support networks and helping people develop strategies to block bullies, because bullying can destroy people’s lives and negatively impact on others, including schools and organizations. I am also frustrated about the community focusing solely on school bullying when there is sometimes more bullying in the staffroom than in the classroom!
I am a practical person, I have become less interested in what happens and why – I want to help people learn simple strategies they can use the following day to improve their social skills and block bullies.
