Under the title "Ostracism in the workplace - Individual differences and coping strategies", Dr. Erez Yaakobi from Ono Academic College, Israel, gave exciting insights into his current studies on Thursday. "Ostracism" in this context can be understood as the exclusion of individuals. This exclusion can lead to high levels of negative stress to a person. Based on a series of experiments, Dr. Yaakobi demonstrated that individuals from two different cultural backgrounds (secular vs. ultra-orthodox) react differently to exclusion and exhibit lower or higher levels of negative stress. Dr. Yaakobi's visit was enabled through ERASMUS+ staff mobility. We thank him for his inspiring presentation!
