An integrative model of experiencing and responding to mistreatment at work Academic Article uri icon


  • Conflict management research generally has focused on some aspects of conflict in organizations - for example, the predictors or consequences of using a particular dispute resolution method - with little theory to explain how various aspects of the process fit together. We present a model that integrates these factors and specifically focuses on the dynamic processes by which an individual concludes that he or she has been mistreated and responds to the mistreatment.
