Psychological Treatment for Mobbing at Work. A clinical case
The present study exposes the psychological intervention of the mobbing at work from a case of a woman of 35 years-old, who presented excessive distress such as depressive and posttraumatic stress symptoms. The intervention consisted of 11 sessions over four months and the variables considered were excessive anxiety reducing, mood improvement, change in dysfunctional beliefs derived from harassment, and personal and work adjustment improvement, using cognitive-behavioral techniques. Quantitative and qualitative results suggest a reduction on the initial symptoms. Overall, the study shows that psychological intervention seems to be helpful to normalize the lives of individuals subjected to a process of psychological mobbing at work.
