Wyatt, J., & Hare C. (1997).  Work Abuse: How to Recognize and Survive It.
"Providing inner security for yourself begins by being your own best friend within the work setting. You have to protect the only friend you may ever have at work: yourself.

Providing inner safety assists your sense of solidity (wholeness, integrity) and reduces your anxiety feelings." (p. 210)
