Bullying involves an abuse of power and dominance by one person or persons over another.  It can take the form of physical, emotional or psychological abuse.  Usually the bully is stronger and bigger than the victim and actually enjoys the feeling of power.  It can involve putting the victim in an embarassing situation and then telling others how the victim reacted.  i.e. humiliating the person.  Increasingly, social media or the Internet is used to bully the victim.  This is called cyberbulling and is occuring more frequently, often with very tragic results.  Victims, often young people, have committed suicide because of bullying.

Support groups, parents, teachers and school systems have developed programs to combat bullying.  There are many books and websites about the topic--all designed to describe the problem and to combat it.  The bullied person should never feel alone and should seek help.

The PCCC Library has a very good collection of books about bullying.  They fall under the call numbers  BF 637 and HV 6773.  The Library also owns electronic books on the subject.
