Abstract: This study investigates the relationship among perceived victimisation and aggressive behaviour in terms of demographic variables of employees of private hospitals. We explored whether the perceived victimisation could lead to aggressive behaviour toward perpetrator as a coping strategy. Participants were 142 employees of 3 private hospitals in city of Mersin, Turkey. Questionnaire included questions according to demographical variables, Perceived Victimization Scale developed by [26] and Aggressive Behaviour Scale by [37]. Pearson’s correlation and descriptive statistical analysis were done. The data obtained from this work reveal that female perceive indirect victimisation more than males, as age and professional experience increases the likelihood of aggressive behaviour toward perpetrator increases too.
