Terry Sereda, Director of Treasury
Terry has been active in lobbying the provincial and Federal governments in 2010, with respect to bullying in the workplace. Additionally, Terry has been involved with the research into the linkage between workplace bullying and the construct of moral disengagement, i.e., how do people rationalize or justify their actions before engaging in a workplace bullying behaviour. Terry holds a Master of Science degree, obtained while studying in the Medical Research Council of Canada, in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Alberta.
Literature of the last couple of decades has studied the phenomenon of workplace bullying extensively. Researchers have approached the subject from a range of aspects, including characteristics of the behaviour. Some have applied the theory of moral disengagement to their efforts to gain a better understanding of the workplace-bullying phenomenon.
