Bullying & Mental Health

It has been proposed, but not empirically validated, that individuals who become bullies have certain personality characteristics. These characteristics are born out of life experiences. Some research has suggested that the incidence of bullying in the workplace could be as high as 30%. It also it has been reported that 30% of individuals have experienced childhood abuse in the home (domestic violence). That is, a large percentage of individual’s carry these “survival” strategies throughout their life and “inappropriate” behaviour manifests in the home, school and work. Bully behaviours can be seen, partly, as a life cycle response to life circumstances. There are many aspects to the problem of bullying but research into life-personality characteristic of the “bully” is badly needed.
