What is bullying?

Some definitions emphasise group violence such as Heinemann when he explains that 'mobbing is group violence against a deviant individual.' See Heinemann (1973).

Comment

The word 'deviant' is used to mean someone who is different in some way from the norm. This definition could cover things like racist or homophobic bullying, as well as the bullying of someone who differs only in being more sensitive than his or her peers.
