Workplace incivility is rampant, and it is on the rise. It can fracture a team, diminish collaboration, reduce team members’ sense of feeling psychologically safe at work, and hamper team effectiveness. Negative comments, backbiting, and other rude behaviour can affect employees’ mental health and psychological wellbeing in many ways, ranging from anxiety, sadness and confusion to post-traumatic stress symptoms in cases of more profound abuse and trauma (Porath, 2013; 2017). This practical workshop, designed for practising clinicians and students, provides an overview of what high conflict personality styles are, how they look, and their ramifications for the workplace. It also discusses simple practical strategies (including Arts Therapy strategies) on how to help our clients seeking therapeutic support to navigate high conflict personality styles, stay safe and productive at their workplace.

Time: 10am AEST (12pm NZT, 8am HKT)
