People at workplace always face with stress and feel it in their lives. There are many factors that create stress and mobbing is one of them. Mobbing is a psychological terror, conducted systematically toward an individual by others at the same workplace. Mobbing started to become a famous subject last years in U.S and Europe. In Turkey, it is a new concept not because it does not occur, because of human nature that does not allow confessing it. Mobbing is being ignored by people, organizations and also government in our country. Because mobbing methods change according to sectors and occupations, it is important to analyze each sector to understand the methods used in mobbing and the reactions of victims to these actions. The focus of this study will be workplace mobbing in Turkish health institutions. The main population of this study consists of employees of state and private hospitals in Turkey. In this paper, both qualitative and quantitative methods will be used to describe the mobbing at Turkish health institutions. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2014
