« Back to Glossary Index

Bullying takes place when a person “is exposed, over time and repeatedly, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons” (Olweus, 1991). It may take many forms, including physical aggression as in hitting or shoving. It can be verbal, as in threats, intimidations, and name calling. It can also be relational, meaning relationships are manipulated to hurt someone else, as in gossip or shunning.
