The Four Types of Bullying


REMEMBER:  Bullying is a pattern of repeated behavior and not a one-time incident


1.  Physical:  hurting a person's body or possessions


2.  Verbal:  saying mean things i.e. name calling, inappropriate comments, taunting or threatening to cause harm.


3.  Socal/Relational:  hurting someone's reputation or relationships i.e. telling others not to be friends with someone, leaving                                      someone out on purpose, spreading rumors, embarrassing in public.


4.  Electronic/Written Communication:  involves cyber-bullying, colletive/group note writing, or any bullying undertaken                                                                                through the use of an electronic device (computer, cell phone, etc.)
