In this perspective, theoretical findings about the definitinions, nature, history of trauma and post traumatic stress order is presented. Workplace bullying, as a potential antecedent of PTSD is presented and parallel with previous research; it is proposed that workplace bullying can trigger PTSD. In addition, evidence indicates traumatic events are not the only of source PTSD; individual differences play a role in predicting PTSD. Thus, neuroticism as a personality characteristic is proposed to have an impact on PTSD. Thus, neuroticism can affect perceptions about workplace bullying. As such, neuroticim can moderate the relationship between workplace bullying and PTSD. In this framework, proposed research model and relationships between variables are discussed in accordance with suggestions for future research. The impact of PTSD on organizational outcomes are also discussed.
