Query: I’m working on an article about bullying and need input from relevant psychologists:

  1. Many administrators, coaches, and other leaders shrug bullying off as inevitable. Is this an appropriate response? If not, what might a more appropriate response be, and why?
  2. In what ways is bullying dangerous to the person being bullied?
  3. What are some specific examples of verbal bullying?
  4. What are some specific examples of physical bullying?
  5. What should an adolescent do if they’re being bullied?
  6. What should an adult do if they’re being bullied?
  7. What should you do if you know that your child or another child you’re close with is being bullied?
  8. What should you do if an adult you’re close to is being bullied?
  9. Is there relevant research on how bullying impacts physical and mental health? If you know of any studies, please share!
