This 2 hour interactive presentation will provide an overview of the issues related to civility in the workplace. The characteristics, benefits, foundations, and strategies to foster civility within the workplace – as well as the costs of incivility – will be explored and discussed. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on the ideals of our profession, revitalize their commitment to their practice, and address relevant areas in their personal and professional lives to enable them to foster civility in their practice. Prior to the workshop, if time permits, we will conduct a Civility Norms Questionnaire – Brief (Walsh 2012) to provide the audience with data about the current state of civility.
We will address a review of the literature related to workplace incivility, ways of measuring workplace incivility and a discussion of ways to promote civility in the workplace.
