For Health and Safety Professionals: Bullying Prevention and Intervention
Health and safety professionals and volunteers are disturbed about the physical and psychosocial harm experienced by many youths as a result of bullying by their peers. Bullying among children is aggressive behavior that is persistent, intentional and involves an imbalance of power or strength. Bullying can take many forms such as: hitting or punching (physical bullying); teasing or name-calling (verbal bullying); intimidation through gestures or social exclusion (nonverbal bullying or emotional bullying); and sending insulting messages by e-mail (cyberbullying). There is no one single cause of bullying among children. Rather, individual, family, peer, school, and community factors can place a young person at risk for bullying his or her peers.

Effects Of Bullying
Bullying can be a sign of other serious antisocial and/or violent behavior. Youth who frequently bully their peers are more likely than others to:
·         Get into frequent fights
·         Be injured in a fight
·         Vandalize property
·         Steal property
·         Smoke
·         Use illicit substances
·         Be truant from school
·         Drop out of school
·         Carry a weapon Youth who are the targets of bullying behavior may exhibit signs of:
·         Lower self-esteem
·         Feelings of fear
·         School phobia and absenteeism
·         Nightmares and sleeplessness
·         Depression and anxiety

Thoughts of suicide Research that looks at the full range of bullying behaviors is finding that the incidence of bullying in the United States is widespread and its consequences more enduring than suspected. In a nationally representative survey of school children, nearly 30 percent reported moderate and more frequent involvement in having been bullied, in bullying or both within the school year. Whether they are perpetrators or targets of bullying, these children face difficulties adjusting to their environments, socially and emotionally.
