When we think of bullies, most of us think of aggressive kids or teens who terrorize individuals they perceive as weaker. Yet, bullying isn’t relegated just to the schoolyard. On the contrary, adult bullies exist everywhere and run rampant in many families, workplaces, neighborhoods, political arenas, and organizations of all types and sizes. And in a media landscape where conflict, chaos, and fear reign supreme, we witness celebrities, politicians, and other public figures exhibiting some of the most egregious behavior.

In Our New World of Adult Bullies: How to Spot Them, How to Stop Them, today's special guest Bill Eddy — therapist, lawyer, mediator, and personality expert — reveals how adult bullies have infiltrated every aspect of our society and explains why we so often allow them to operate unchallenged. Whether they are feeding our primitive fears, manipulating our empathetic emotions, or intimidating us with their unrestrained personalities, adult bullies are highly effective at dominating others in nearly every arena of our lives.

Offering invaluable insight into the behavior of adult bullies, their supporters, and our impulses, Our New World of Adult Bullies is an essential guide for those seeking to decrease bullying behavior and gain allies in their professional and personal lives.

Bill Eddy is the Chief Innovation Officer of the High Conflict Institute based in San Diego, California. He trains lawyers, judges, mediators, and therapists throughout the United States and a dozen other countries in managing high-conflict family, workplace, and legal disputes. He is the author of over 20 books and manuals and has a popular blog on PsychologyToday.com.
