What is their confidence like? How do they see themselves? What effects does this have in their life and future career?
Imagine the bullying DID stop - How different might their life be now? BULLY vs VICTIM Imagine if they went through life never understanding the impact of their behaviour on the people they bullied. What type of person would they be? Are they still a bully now?

Bullying occurs in all walks of life... What does a typical bully look like...? BUT... SO... Cyber Bullying Cyber bullying includes communications that seek to:
put down,
falsely discredit, or
humiliate the recipient.

The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile. This can also include TEXTUAL HARASSMENT and stalking! Social Bullying Social bullying, sometimes referred to as relational bullying, involves hurting someone’s reputation or relationships. Social bullying includes:

Leaving someone out on purpose
Telling other people not to be friends with someone
Spreading rumors about someone
Embarrassing someone in public What can bullying lead to? Verbal bullying Physical Bullying Ignore the bully: This is difficult, but if you can shrug off insults and provide no reaction, there is a chance that eventually the bully will move on to someone who provides a more interesting and responsive target.
Tell an authority figure: A trusted teacher can make things a little easier, by being on the lookout for bullying behavior.
Remain civil: Do not resort to rudeness yourself. Many bullies lose interest if you do not sink to their level.
Don't take it personally - most bullies have been bullied themselves and do it for attention! They are the ones with the problem - not you!
Try to focus on your true friends.
Look for other sources of enjoyment: After school activities and other interests and hobbies can help you take your mind off bullying.
Don't ignore bullying! If you see it happening make sure you take action! Verbal bullying occurs when someone uses language to gain power over his or her peers. This may include: Name calling, teasing, insults, intimidation, homophobic or racist remarks or verbal abuse.
Verbal bullies are one of the more difficult types of bullies to identify since their attacks tend to only occur when adults are not present. Even though verbal bullying creates no physical damage, this type of abuse can have lasting psychological impacts on victims. Using physical means to exert power over someone. Physical bullying includes hitting, kicking, tripping, pinching and pushing or damaging property. 4 main types: Bullying does not discriminate against age, gender or profession! Be aware that bullying can occur in the workplace as well as at school - even in professional offices. Growing up, I always tried to be the kid that everyone liked in school. I wanted to be popular. I would do anything to get kids to like me. Even if it meant hurting someone else. I didn't realize it at the time, but I was just compensating for my own insecurities. My family didn't have much money and I couldn't afford the nice clothes or video games. I couldn't invite anyone over for sleep-overs because we lived in a 1 bedroom apartment. I didn't have a bike or skates so I borrowed one of my friends. What I did have was my humor. I found, at an early age, that if I could get people to laugh, they would like me. It was great! I didn't need money to make people laugh. I just needed some good ammunition. Unfortunately, my ammo was anyone who was different. My happiness came at the expense of others. I made fun of people because of their clothes, looks, weight, the way they talked. Anything I could, I guess, to deflect the attention on someone else. I was the class clown. I made fun of the teacher, the way people smelled, their mental capacity. Anything that was "Different" from me. Looking back, I'm realizing I was a lot more like them than I knew. I never bullied people because I wanted them to feel bad. I just wanted people to laugh and think that I brought something to the table. That made me feel good. I wanted friends at the expense of others but never realized how negatively it affected them.

Until I had kids... Victim perspective Scenarios Teacher
