Olweus Bullying Prevention Overview What is Bullying? Program Content Basic Principles Evidence of Effectiveness Back to Switchboard What Is Bullying? A student is being bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part

of one or more students. There is an imbalance in strength or power. Bullying may be carried out through physical, vebal, or indirect means (e.g. exclusion). Thus bullying is characterized by three criteria: It is aggressive behavior or intentional harmdoing. It is carried out repeatedly and over time. It occurs within an interpersonal relationship characterized by an imbalance in power.
