I have been interviewed many times about how employees can become abusive, nasty, and even violent toward others in the workplace. Desk rage is a term used by the media. Academic researchers refer it by a number of terms that reflect both psychological mistreatment and workplace physical violence.
- American Psychological Association, Monitor on Psychology, “Road Rage, Air Rage and Now Desk Rage”
- Daily Mail “Hell in the Office as Desk Rage Explodes.”
- Huffington Post “Do You Suffer from Desk Rage?”
- Reuters “Desk Rage Spoils Workplace for Many Americans.
