Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior manifested by the use of force or coercion to affect others, particularly when the behavior is habitual and involves an imbalance of power. It can include verbal harassment, physical assault or coercion and may be directed repeatedly towards particular victims, perhaps on grounds of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability.cite_ref-1cite_ref-2 The "imbalance of power" may be social power and/or physical power. The victim of bullying is sometimes referred to as a "target."Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse - emotional, verbal, and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as intimidation. Bullying can be defined in many different ways. The UK currently has no legal definition of bullying, cite_ref-3 while some U.S. states have laws against it.cite_ref-4show more
