International Association on Workplace Bullying and Harassment

Elfi Baillien

Elfi Baillien is Work and Organizational psychologist and assistant professor at HUBrussel. She finalized her PhD on the development of workplace bullying in 2011. She engaged herself as a bullying researcher after a close friend became a target of bullying in 2002. Ever since, she aimed to further practical understanding of this phenomenon by means of academic studies that shed light on what is actually going on and to contribute to evidence based bullying interventions in practice. In this context, she has worked within a range of organizations, with various practitioners in the field. As a member of the board, she would like enhance collaboration between academics and practitioners. She would also like to further establish workplace bullying as a significant topic in the academic world, and encourage researchers to get this topic ‘out there’. Her taks within the board include updating the literature and events list.
