At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullying --Bullying consists of three basic types of abuse – emotional, verbal, and physical. It typically involves subtle methods of coercion such as intimidation. While some bullies are arrogant and narcissistic, bullies can also use bullying as a tool to conceal shame or anxiety or to boost self-esteem: by demeaning others, the abuser feels empowered.
Summing it up, the bullying-cycle must include both an act of aggression on the part of a potential bully, and a response by a potential target that is perceived by both as a certain sign of submission. Should the intended target respond with a clear attitude of self-confidence that somehow demonstrates that the bully's attempt to dominate is futile, then the bullying attempt will often quickly diminish or end all-together. This Wikipedia page was the most comprehensive, with 80 footnotes and several references to read.

After much reading on bullying, what stands out the most is connecting with the feelings and needs of both the bully and his or her victims. When the victims feel the support of parents, teachers and friends, they are more likely able to remember and know that there is nothing wrong with them, and thereby more easily ward off and not be impacted by the harassment of bullies. Taking the time to listen, anyone in the bullied person’s life can patiently and lovingly assure him or her and connect with what he is feeling and needing. I will be happy to offer a free 30-minute coaching session for anyone whose life is impacted by bullying.
