Title: A psychodynamic perspective of workplace bullying:containment, boundaries and a futile search for recognition.
Year: 2004
Authors: White, S.
Abstract:

Taking the theme of space, the paper draws on fieldwork and psychoanalytical theory to illustrate the evolving interpersonal and team dynamics within a bullying scenario. The life cycle theory of bullying shows how both bully and victim become trapped in a parastic dynamic in which boundaries are obliterated and there is confusion of identities. Recommendations are made for preventative action.

Keywords: bullying, life cycle theory, boundaries, containment, projection, recognition.
