Linda Crockett is a trauma therapist and social worker with 32 years of experience. After experiencing workplace bullying and receiving a diagnosis of PTSD, she discovered there were no resources available to people suffering from this type of workplace abuse. Linda completed her masters degree specializing in this area and is a member of the International Assoc of Workplace Bullying and Harassment.
She is also a proud alumni of the Workplace Bullying Institute in the USA. In 2010 she pioneered the first full service, workplace bullying resource centre in Canada.
Linda offers consults, assessments, training for leaders and staff, advocacy, and treatment for the injuries sustained. Linda provides a specialized treatment for those who are harmed, and a rehab program for those doing the harming. Her philosophy is that we must provide education and treatment for all parties, or we will never fully resolve this abuse. Linda and Pat Ferris are currently offering a two part training webinar. Part one is for contact professionals (Human Resources, OHS, Unions, Insurance, Investigators, Mediators), and part two is for treatment providers.
