Gary Namie, PhD, is the senior consultant at Work Doctor Inc., a firm established in 1985 and now specializing in workplace bullying. He is a "recovering academic" with extensive experience in teaching university graduate and undergraduate courses in psychology and management. He was also a corporate manager for two regional hospital systems and served as the expert witness in the nation's first "bullying" trial in Indiana, a verdict upheld by the state supreme court in 2008.
Ruth F. Namie, PhD, is a founding consultant for Work Doctor Inc. and was training director for Sheraton Hotels before her clinical training led to helping chemically dependent individuals and families. Ruth's personal experience was the impetus for the workplace bullying movement in the United States. She has since become an expert on the devastating effects of bullying on targeted workers. Her humanizing contributions to the Namie Blueprint are what distinguish it from traditional business solutions to violence problems at work.
