Abstract [en]

Very often we are likely to hear how important it is as adults to help small children and pupils out of bullying situations, both for the bullied one and the bully. What we often tend to forget is that bullying situations among adults are as common as the ones children put up with. The only difference is that the ones adults go through is a much more silent one, and the bullies often have a better strategy on how to beat down their victims slowly. Some of the cases also show that the bullying that is happening among adults is similar to the one between children. The risks in the bullying that occurs in the work environment are such as: bad self-esteem, doubting in their roles as professionals, anger, depression, anxiety and in some cases can be so dangerous that the suffered one eventually commits suicide. Therefore I chose to examine what kind of view the interviewed educators have towards:

  • What the definition of bullying is?
  • What kinds of factors are causing the bullying?
  • What kind of action-plans are there to prevent this from happening?

Needless to say, the topic becomes more interesting when the authorities at work don’t show interest in taking the problems seriously, which almost give the bullies the impression that it’s acceptable to do so. Unfortunately, the results showed that the employees eventually decided to quit their jobs, because of all the harassments that didn’t stop and for the help they didn’t get from their bosses and neither did they’ve had contact with the Work Environment Agency. It is also of importance to mention that all three of the interviewed people are educators themselves and worked in a preschool environment during the bullying periods. The study has been examined by their perspective on the subject.
