Types of Bullying

CONFLICT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CHANGE – EMBRACE IT

BULLYING IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PROBLEM SOLVING – SEIZE THE MOMENT AND SPEAK OUT

  • Verbal (name calling, teasing, shouting, threatening, gossip, slander,  sexual harassment, general harassment etc.)
  • Non Verbal (pulling faces, mimicking someone, etc.)
  • Physical (hitting, throwing things at people, fighting, shoving, coercing, destroying or stealing belongings, unwanted sexual touching or being forced to touch someone inappropriately, etc.)
  • Emotional (manipulation, threatening, guilt tripping, emotional abuse)
  • Social (excluding others from a group, isolating an individual, scapegoating, mobbing, hazing, happy slapping, humiliating others with public gestures or graffiti intended to put others down.)
  • Cyber (creating hate pages, slandering, posting inappropriate material, sexting, texting.)

People can be bullied because of their gender, sexuality, race, culture, religion, body size, their accent, what they wear, how they speak, for having a different opinion, for simply being human.
