Most of us spend more time at work than at home, and therefore it is important that the workplace be an environment where we feel safe and comfortable. However, because work is where different personalities, communication styles, and worldviews gather around, things don’t always go smoothly. In fact, workplace bullying is on the rise and though statistics vary, some studies reveal that nearly half of all American workers have been affected by this problem, either as a target or as a witness to abusive behavior against a co-worker.
Other examples of common workplace issues include:
- Poor job fit
- Sexual or verbal harassment
- Low motivation and job dissatisfaction
How a Therapist Can Help
Therapy for work and career issues can help a person develop a better understanding of their wants and needs as well as approach alternative ways to handle tension while on the clock. Therapy is a neutral setting where individuals can gain control of their fears, worries, or stressors, and begin to focus on a future that aligns with their temperament and dreams.
Psychotherapy tends to work well when addressing workplace issues because talk therapy such as this can effectively treat depression and anxiety that can stem from these conflicts. A mental health professional can also teach coping skills that will help a person manage work-related stress.
