In this episode, we focus on bystanders. What keeps bystanders from coming forward and how can we encourage them to do so? What are the effects on the bystander? How do we support bystanders who have been witnessing harassment?

Linda’s clinical and professional training includes a master’s degree specializing in workplace bullying and trauma. She is a certified trauma therapist and social worker with 33 years of experience in her profession. Linda has designed two aspects of services for all professions and industries. One is for leaders offering consultations, coaching, and training. And the other is her repair and recovery clinic. Linda offers a safe, nonjudgmental, confidential space for services of education, training, advocacy, coaching, and/or treatment.

All of these hats are necessary to appropriately serve the complexities of these cases. For example, for individuals or groups (complainants, witnesses, or respondents), or internal and external workplace services e.g., HR, Leaders, insurance, unions, legal, mediation, safety officers, and investigators.
