What is bullying?

Key statement

There is no agreed definition of bullying. It can take many forms - physical, verbal or social (for example deliberately keeping someone out of a group). All forms have something in common - they cause distress, at times extreme. There are numerous definitions of bullying written for various purposes and emphasising different aspects.

Comment

Most researchers now agree that what distinguishes bullying from other types of undesirable behaviour is the affect it has on the victim. Victims will be significantly hurt or upset and will not be able to defend themselves effectively.
