Passive Aggressive Behavior: Sources and Solutions for your Library (LibraryWorks Webinar) Online

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we are working with LibraryWorks to provide our members with access to their webinars.  These webinars are free to Massachusetts library workers who register through our calendar. 

Passive aggressive behavior can be maddening. It catches us off guard, causes confusion, resentment and low morale. What causes it? And how can you help prevent it? This webinar will bring together research from multiple fields on how to handle passive aggressive behavior, with particular tips for librarians. It will also explore the causes of passive aggressive behavior, the benefits of anger, gender biases around anger and more.

This webinar will discuss:
•    What causes passive aggressive behavior?
•    The psychology and utility of anger
•    How to handle passive aggressive behavior from colleagues, supervisors, and patrons
•    How to identify enabling behavior
