Reputation Repair Coach and Founder of Oxygen Coaching
People who’ve experienced workplace abuse or harassment often experience trauma, shame, and humiliation. It can be challenging to find understanding. Few comprehend the feelings unless they’ve had similar experiences. Individuals find ways to cope: positive coping mechanisms like mediation, yoga, and therapy; and negative ones such as overdrinking or medicating, disengaging with life, and self-harm.
