• Recognizing Bullying

    Dan Olweus, creator of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, defines bullying as:

    "A person is bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending himself or herself."

    This definition includes three important components:

    1. Bullying is aggressive behavior that involves unwanted, negative actions.
    2. Bullying involves a pattern of behavior repeated over time.
    3. Bullying involves an imbalance of power or strength.
