What does it feel like to be bullied?

As part of a large international study of bullying in schools, 29 children and 7 adults were interviewed in Spain. The questions were trying to get at how children and adults think and feel about bullying. These were either people who had experienced bullying directly or ones who had not, but who were aware of the issue. The strongest emotion of the victim, according to those interviewed, would be feeling upset (42%), then feeling angry (30.5%). Another emotion mentioned was helplessness.
