The study is aimed at investigating the peculiarities of mobbing, as compared with other stress-related occupational issues, considering personal, occupational and health variables. A sample of 100 subjects examined in our Service was considered: 52 presented a situation ascribable to workplace bullying, 44 diseases associated with other occupational malfunctions, 4 were judged affected by psychic non work-related diseases. The two first samples do not differ as to main personal variables. Company reorganization is the most frequent event prior to work-related problems resulting into negative actions addressed towards the work, especially for workplace bullying. Both samples show impaired psychophysical conditions with a more serious depressive scenario for workplace bullying victims. This scenario can be associated with a more serious occupational situation and in particular victimization process.
