Recognize, Address, STOP—Working Together to Prevent Bullying!


During their educational experiences and in practice, dental professionals must collaborate as part of a team. To be successful, individuals must be civil with each other. Unfortunately, incivility and workplace bullying are becoming increasingly evident in educational and workplace environments. Unfamiliarity with incivility, bullying, lateral and horizontal violence, mobbing and microaggression contributes to a serious and escalating problem in the dental professions.

This webinar highlights bullying behaviors, discusses the bullying continuum, demonstrates frequently-encountered examples in dental settings and provides strategies for addressing such behaviors.

Note: This presentation was originally featured at the 2019 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiate between the frequently-encountered negative behaviors that occur in the dental professions, including incivility in the classroom and workplace, bullying, horizontal and lateral violence, mobbing and microaggression.
  • Identify strategies to address bullying behaviors from the viewpoint of the person witnessing the act and the perspective of the recipient of the behavior.
  • Examine a model for ethical decision-making to determine support alternatives for victims and address the behaviors of perpetrators.
