Session: Behavioral Health and Bullying
Bullying is described by the Centers for Disease Control as a type of "youth violence" against a victim involving unwanted offensive actions from a bully. At the root of bullying is a power imbalance of social status, income, physical strength or size, whether perceived or real. Bullying, resulting in physical, psychological, social or educational damage, may be replicated over periods of time.
In appearance, sexual orientation, cultural identity or disability, children and adolescents at greater risk of being bullied are often thought of as different.
