Bullying is a permanent procedure of harassment that happens in relationships in the context of work and compromises the physical and psychological health of the subjects. Some workers show themselves able to develop ways of dealing with difficulties by making use of coping strategies. This study aims to relate organizational harassment and coping strategies in Angolan public organizations. It was part of the study 90 workers between the ages of 18 and 65 years. Two instruments were used to collect data: the Leymann Inventory of Psychological Terrorism scale (LPT-60) adapted for organizational level, an Occupational Coping Scale (ECO) and a socio-demographic questionnaire. Male and female employees (50% women and 50% men), mean age of 44 years (SD = 10.30), with professional experience of 17.59 (SD = 12.00). The results suggest that the adapted scale presents adequate psychometric quality and all factors present mean below the midpoint of the scale, indicating that organizational moral harassment is perceived with low overall prevalence. The results have negative correlations between the factors of organizational moral harassment and the control strategy, therefore, it is the most protective coping strategy. The strategy of escape-avoidance appears positively related to Intimidation and is, therefore, a failed strategy. It is hoped that this study will contribute to the advancement of this construct studies, assist in protective policies to the phenomenon, as well as for production lesgislation and public policies to prevent and combat the Organizational Bullying in Angola.
