CFAM >Research Partners

Although we have worked with a large number of research partners and client organizations over the years, we would like to acknowledge the following:

  • The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA): Since 1999, we have been conducting reserarch with, and providing consulting services to, the Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Administration, and National Cemetery Adminstration. We continue to work with the Detroit VA Medical Center conducting research on interpersonal interactions between U.S. military veterans and VA Health Care Staff. The VA has been enormously supportive of our efforts and has been on the cutting-edge of workplace aggression research in the United States. We are greatful to the many dedicated individuals working in this vital organization.
  • The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Since 2003, we have conducted research and provided consulting services to NIOSH related to workplace bullying and psychological aggression. This has involved convening an international panel of workplace bullying experts for ongoing research and the development of interventions to manage and prevent disruptive workplace behavior. Our efforts invovle the development and implementation of a national research to track the nature, prevalence, and consequences of workplace aggression and the translation of these research findings into effective interventions.
