What is the definition of bullying?
I use the following if anyone would care to comment.
Bullying is a dynamic whereby there is repeated attempted control or manipulation of one or more individuals against their will by another one or group of individuals using either physical, verbal, psychological or emotional means. In most cases it involves three parties the victim(s), the perpetrator(s) and the observer(s). What is perceived as bullying may not be necessarily perceived as such by all the different parties involved.
The more common one is along this lines:
Bullying is the repeated deliberate aggression, verbal, psychological or physical, conducted by an individual or group against others (individuals or groups). Isolated incidents of aggressive behaviour, although not condoned, cannot be described as bullying. However, when the behaviour is systematic and ongoing, it is bullying.
