Workplace bullying, the repeated and regular act of harassing, offending, socially excluding someone, or negatively affecting someone’s work over time has been recognized as a serious threat to the health and well-being of employees. This study sought to explore resilience as a coping strategy to help improve the physical and mental health effects of professional women who have or are experiencing workplace bullying. The central research question was, how does perceived resilience, when used as a coping strategy, help with the physical and mental health stressors while helping to improve the overall well-being of professional women who were or have experienced workplace bullying? Using a qualitative methodology with a single-case study design, 10 professional women who have and are still experiencing workplace bullying were commissioned to participate. To increase the validity of the results, four data techniques were employed: open-ended interviews, researcher notes with observations, and two surveys-the Resilience at Work ([email protected]) Scale, and the SF12v2 Health Survey. Four major themes emerged: Negative Experiences, Consequences of Bullying, Impact on Health, and Support Systems. It was discovered that the majority of the participants believed that they were targeted at their workplace because of their race, followed by their gender, and age. The women shared that the negative experiences and consequences of bullying can serve as indicators that workplace bullying is evident and that it can affect their health negatively. Additionally, the participants reported that various support systems and networks greatly increased their resilience at work.

Als Teildisziplin, die sich mit textübergreifenden Bedeutungsbezügen und historisch-kulturell verankertem Wissen befasst, hat sich die Diskurslinguistik mittlerweile in der Sprachwissenschaft etabliert. Es liegt eine Fülle von Einzeluntersuchungen vor, und die theoretische Diskussion ist weit vorangeschritten. Was allerdings immer noch fehlt, ist eine fundierte Methodik und Methodologie. Hier setzt der Band an. Die Beiträge präsentieren und diskutieren verschiedene diskurslinguistische Untersuchungsverfahren.
