Any use of aggression with the intention of hurt to another person.
A person is bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending himself or herself. (Prof Dan Olweus).
A bystander is someone who sees or knows about bullying happening to someone else. A supportive bystander will act in such a way that the bullying stops or is reduced, or so that he or she helps the victim of bullying to overcome the incident and the hurt caused.
