MESEGUER-DE-PEDRO, Mariano; GARCIA-IZQUIERDO, Mariano; FERNANDEZ-VALERA, María Magdalena  and  SOLER-SANCHEZ, María Isabel. The role of resilience between workplace bullying and health: a mediational analysis. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.3, pp.177-182.  Epub Dec 02, 2019. ISSN 2174-0534.

Workplace bullying is a serious problem that may arise within any occupation or organisation. Situations of workplace bullying are highly stressful and affect the health of workers who experience them in a negative way. Resilience has beenidentified as an essential capacity to protect people’s health. This study focuses on how resilience functions in situations of workplace bullying. By means of questionnaires, information about workplace bullying behaviours, resilience, andpsychological health in a sample of 762 workers was collected. The results show that exposure to bullying behaviours is related to poorer health, and resilience has a mediating role in the relationship between workplace bullying and employees’health. Main findings, limitations, and practical consequences of this study are discussed. The results obtained may serve to assist human resources managers and professionals when they are designing programs aimed at both controlling andpreventing workplace bullying within organisations.
