Is bullying usually carried out by an individual or group?

Key statement

Many studies have found that it is most common to be bullied by a group rather than an individual. However there are studies which have found it more likely to be bullied by an individual.

Comment

The important thing here is that group bullying and bullying by an individual are both common. However, they are often very different types of behaviour. An individual who consistently bullies others in a variety of situations usually has a number of personal and social problems, of which bullying is only one manifestation. A bullying group may be composed of individuals who have little to distinguish them from their non-bullying peers.
(Andrew Mellor)
