Transcript of Bullying
Bullying involves repeated occurrences. Bullying is not generally considered a random act nor a single incident. Rather, a child is repeatedly picked on by another child or is the target of harassment from a whole group of children. It is the repeated nature of bullying that causes anxiety and apprehension in victims, such that the anticipation of bullying becomes as problematic as the bullying itself.
Bullying is characterized by a power difference; an unfair fight where the child who bullies has some advantage or power over the child who is victimized. Bullying is not the same as “playing around,” it is about the abuse of power.
(http://www.education.com/topic/bullying/schoolbullying/) The Effects of Bullying Bullying can affect everyone—those who are bullied, those who bully, and those who witness bullying. Bullying is linked to many negative outcomes including impacts on mental health, substance use, and suicide. It is important to talk to kids to determine whether bullying—or something else—is a concern. Cyberbullying What is Cyberbullying Stopping and Preventing Bullying Bullying is a group phenomenon- In many regards, bullying can be viewed as a peer-driven phenomenon that is both encouraged and maintained by characteristics of the peer group.
Focusing on individual bullies without considering the complex roles that all youth play in the bully dynamic keeps us from preventing bullying.
There are specific roles that youth play both directly or indirectly. We have commonly heard of bystanders who pass by an incident, simply observe, or participate. http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=24230082#ooid=tldGxwOTqjoyMg2LhCxqcoQjkFuIofR_ Cyberbullying in schools?

Physical bullying is bullying that takes the form of physical abuse, such as pushing, shoving, hitting, fighting, spitting, and tripping. Threats of physical harm and attempts to force people to act in ways they would prefer not to are also included.
Emotional bullying is bullying that involves factors other than physical interaction, such as insults, derogatory remarks, name calling, and teasing. Also included are attempts to ostracize the victim, such as being left out or ignored, which is sometimes referred to as social bullying, as distinguished from verbal bullying. Emotional bullying could also take the form of purposely misplacing or hiding someone's belongings. Emotional bullying can be done in person or through cyberbullying. Specific Targets of School Bullying
-Homophobic bullying is sometimes distinguished because it has a particular target population.
-Bullying of students with disabilities is another type of bullying with a focused target population.
-Racist bullying is a third type of focused bullying that targets people of a specific race or cultural.
-Religious bullying targets people who have specific religious beliefs. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly a third of all students aged 12 - 18 reported having been bullied at school in 2007, some almost daily. http://www.bullyingstatistics.org/content/school-bullying.html Kids who Bully Others Kids who bully others can also engage in violent and other risky behaviors into adulthood.

The Relationship between Bullying and Suicide
Media reports often link bullying with suicide. However, most youth who are bullied do not have thoughts of suicide or engage in suicidal behaviors.
Although kids who are bullied are at risk of suicide, bullying alone is not the cause. Many issues contribute to suicide risk, including depression, problems at home, and trauma history. Additionally, specific groups have an increased risk of suicide, including American Indian and Alaskan Native, Asian American, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth. This risk can be increased further when these kids are not supported by parents, peers, and schools. Bullying can make an unsupportive situation worse.
