Defining bullying: A review of literature

Defining bullying: A review of literature

Rosy Dhall and Dr. Aarti
This study aims to review different definitions of bullying. We looked for articles studies in Scopus. Studies included in this review that looked at the differences between layman and Previous researchers’ definitions of bullying, and different definitions result in different outcomes. In contrast to traditional bullying, research on cyberbullying was not included in the study. Only 17 of the 606 research papers screened met the study's eligibility requirements. Dozens of studies examined how respondents gives the definition of bullying, while six looked at the different definitions are associated with different reported prevalence rates. According to the findings, layman definitions of bullying are inconsistent and do not match the criteria established by researchers. As a result of the more specific definitions, a greater understanding of the bullying behaviour emerged. In order to conduct academic research, academic researchers should always be provided with a written definition of bullying behaviour or, if possible, with a video explaining the five characteristics that define the bullying behaviour.
