GUIMARAES, Liliana A. M. et al. Mobbing: relationship between mental disorders and coping in Brazil-Bolívia gas pipeline workers. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2005, vol.5, n.2, pp. 15-34. ISSN 1984-6657.

Mobbing or psychological harassment in the workplace has been considered an important psychosocial risk factor, bringing harm ful effects to the worker's physical/mental health. Researches have demonstrated that characteristics of the workplace/worker are associated with the development of Mobbing. This study aims to investigate the prevalence and level of Mobbing and its relationship with Mental Disorders and Coping. A sample of 74 workers of the Brazil-Bolivia gas pipeline replied to the Leymann Inventory Psychological Terrorization (LIPT), the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Questionnaire (QMPA) and the Billings and Moos Coping Scale (BMCS). High prevalence of Suspected Cases of Mental Disorders (SCMD) (30.9%) and Mobbing (19.1 %) was found. Most of the participants (80.9%) used the cognitive - active Coping method focusing on the problem. Mobbing was significantly associated with SCMD, which indicates that the former is a psychosocial risk factor for Mental Disorders
