Psychologist, Author, Speaker
Hello, I’m Evelyn M Field, OAM. I’m a psychologist, professional speaker, bestselling author and regular media commentator.
I’ve spent over forty years helping students and adults develop social survival skills and manage school and workplace bullying.
My passion was recognised in the Australian Queens Birthday Honours, June 2014, “For service to the community, particularly though anti-school and workplace bullying initiatives.”
The key to managing bullying is understanding, knowing the causes, the organizational damage, the personal injuries and symptoms, as well as developing a variety of options and strategies to manage it more collaboratively and effectively.
The secret is understanding what bullying involves, why it happens, the personal injuries and organizational damage, as well as developing a variety of options and strategies to manage it. I hope that you can become empowered to manage bullying in a respectful, collaborative manner, while avoiding any adversarial behaviours.
I hope that my website has lots of information and resources to help you understand and manage school and workplace bullying.

“Harry the Bully Blocker” is coming soon!
Harry is a shy, bullied little dog. In a dream, he meets some friendly animals who teach him useful bully-blocking skills. Harry puts these new skills into practice: they work immediately, and his life is transformed. In learning how to block bullies and make new friends – skills he can use all his life – Harry has shed his fear, and now enjoys being with his peers.
This small audio and written book will empower anyone who feels like a bullied child, learn how to block bullies. It is based on the therapy model Evelyn developed to train psychologists, and help bullied children manage their basic survival instinct more effectively!
It is effective and empowering: even young children understand the concept of keeping their power or giving it away and making the bully happy. Harry’s story is written in the form of a poem, with music, to help children remember the words, which are meaningful and therapeutic.

How Can Workplace Leaders More Effectively Manage Bullies and Targets?
Wednesday 6th October 2021
In this seminar, we will explore key issues and strategies that allow workplace leaders to more effectively manage and support alleged bullies and targets. It will be presented by two workplace bullying experts and specialists who will present on the following topics:
Title: Can you reform the bullying or abrasive workplace leader?
Presenter: Michael Plowright, Abrasive Leaders Specialist Coach and Director, Working Well Together
Michael's presentation focuses on the strategies that HR and/or managers can use to help support and reform the bullying or abrasive leader. He explores the role of perception in achieving change when facts can be hard to come by.
Title: How to support the employee impacted by bullying to remain or return safely to the workplace?
Presenter: Alexina Baldini, Psychologist and Director, Enable Workplace Consulting
Alexina’s presentation focuses on decision making by workplace leaders and managers of impacted staff in relation to bullying – do we have the psychologically injured worker remain in their usual role or allow healing via supportive relocation as necessary and practical? She also explores the strategies found helpful in empowering workers who have been bullied to return to work after absence - in a psychologically healthy manner. This requires preparation of the team and whole organisation for successful outcomes.
