In Crisis? Seek Help

24 Hour Help Hotline

Nearly two years after the managing editor of the Virginia Quarterly Review killed himself following complaints he made about his boss, Ted Genoways, Mr. Genoways has announced that he is stepping down as editor of the award-winning literary journal. – [Chronicle of Higher Education, April 4, 2012 Robin Wilson]

This weekend I finally finished editing the long version of my documentary about the aftermath of Kevin’s suicide.  It’s a revealing portrait of today’s workplace bullying movement, the lack of depth in media coverage about the topic, and a cautionary tale about the complexity of our office relationships.

The final film (hat tip consulting editor Pam Arnold) is exactly what I promised everyone who agreed to take part – a chance  to tell the story from their individual perspectives.   And, for the first time the POV of the alleged bully is included.  The result underscores the urgent need to embrace new approaches to this topic.   The long awaited web version has taken an exciting turn and will soon enter the web design and coding phase that will make it a truly interactive experience.  Now it’s time to turn to the interactive version.

Take the interactive experience now or you can purchase an educational DVD for a presentation
