Bullying is a specific form of aggressive behavior and can be described as a situation when a student: 'is exposed repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students' (Olweus, 1993). These negative actions take place when an imbalance of power exists between the victim and the aggressor. The bullying behavior can be 'physical' (e.g. hitting, pushing, kicking), 'verbal' (e.g. calling names, provoking, making threats, spreading slander), or can include other behavior such as making faces or social exclusion. Children who bully others experience enjoyment in exercising power and status over victims and fail to develop empathy for others. In this way bullying eases the way for children who are drawn to a path of delinquency and criminality. The present paper attempts to review school bullying victimization and its underlying factors.

Abstract


Bullying is a specific form of aggressive behavior and can be described as a situation when a student: 'is exposed repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students' (Olweus, 1993). These negative actions take place when an imbalance of power exists between the victim and the aggressor. The bullying behavior can be 'physical' (e.g. hitting, pushing, kicking), 'verbal' (e.g. calling names, provoking, making threats, spreading slander), or can include other behavior such as making faces or social exclusion. Children who bully others experience enjoyment in exercising power and status over victims and fail to develop empathy for others. In this way bullying eases the way for children who are drawn to a path of delinquency and criminality. The present paper attempts to review school bullying victimization and its underlying factors.
