This chapter focuses on family and social relationships as they are impacted by the experiences of mobbing and bullying, whether those experiences are school- or workplace-based. It is proposed that there is an additive effect between health consequences suffered as a result of mobbing and their impact on family life and social relationships—the more severe the health consequences, the greater the impact on family life and on social relationships. Additionally, this chapter includes a detailed discussion of the range of possible individual responses to mobbing episodes, including individual neurophysiological responses, and looks at how those individual responses interact within family and social relationships. The potential scale and range of mobbing-related losses in both school and workplace mobbing is presented and discussed. Vignettes and examples that illustrate the impact of mobbing on family life and social relationships at work and school are provided.

Keywords:   mobbing, family relationships, social relationships, health consequences, neurophysiological responses, losses
