90 Minute Seminar
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
During their educational experiences and in practice, dental professionals must collaborate as part of a team. To be successful, individuals must be civil with each other. Unfortunately, incivility and workplace bullying are becoming increasingly evident in educational and workplace environments. Unfamiliarity with incivility, bullying, lateral and horizontal violence, mobbing and microaggression contributes to a serious and escalating problem. This presentation highlightsbullying behaviors, discusses the bullying continuum, demonstrates frequently encountered examples in dental settings and provides strategies for addressing such behaviors. Real time polling will be incorporated in assessing scenarios for discussion.Program coordinated by American Society for Dental Ethics.
