In recent years a growing number of interventions have been designed to reduce the impact of workplace bullying within organisations. However, due to a lack of research into this area relatively little is known about the efficacy of such programs. This paper presents an overview of a longitudinal research project being constructed to determine the impact of training on workplace bullying to assist employees to manage workplace bullying when it occurs. We propose an intervention which includes restorative justice practices, emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills training may be able to assist in reducing the impact of antisocial behaviours. The project will employ an experimental research design to determine the impact of the training on individuals and work teams within organisations.
