Does bullying cause problems in later years?

A Swedish study found that a group of 23 year old adults who had been consistently bullied as children were, in some ways, still affected by their experience. When compared to a group of adults who had not experienced bullying at school, it was found that they had lower self-esteem and were more likely to be depressed.

Author details

Professor Dan Olweus was the first person to carry out a thorough research project on Professor Dan Olweusbullying. This large, long term study which began in Sweden in 1970, was to provide the inspiration for many who felt that bullying in schools should be challenged rather than accepted. Since the 1970s, his work in this area had continued with force. Indeed, in 1997-99, he led a group in a large project which introduced the widely respected Olweus (anti-bullying) programme to schools in Norway. Professor Olweus is based at the Research Centre for Health Promotion, University of Bergen in Norway and can be contacted by email.
