Mobbing (bullying at work) and regressive mechanisms in groups. ABSTRACT: The diffusion of work-related psychiatric pathologies represents an emerging phenomenon in clinical practice. While the contributions of work-related medicine and psychology are rather numerous, the contributions referring to psychiatry and clinical psychology are still relatively rare. This paper tries to apply psychodynamic concepts to the phenomenon of mobbing by integrating them with contributions and reflections coming from the fields of economic, sociological and psychosocial research. Wilfred R. Bion’s theory of regression in groups and Otto F. Kernberg’s contributions are particularly emphasized. Some aspects of the so called new economy are discussed, mainly concerning their implications for the development of identity processes of individuals and for the psychology of groups. [Key words: mobbing (bullying at work), psychodynamic dimensions, psychosocial dimensions, regressive mechanisms, scapegoat]
