- One episode is not enough. A teenager is a victim of bullying when, along the time, is repeatedly subjected to offensive actions – both inside the group and individually.
- It is not one episode but a series of wrong actions repeatedly implemented by someone who says or does something to have power on a certain person.
- There are two typologies of bullying: direct (physical and verbal) and indirect (which damages the victim’s relationships with other persons, excluding and isolating him/her from the group).
Protagonists, both victims and tormentors, are always child (boys and girls) or teenagers. Usually they share the same environment: school, sporting centres or leisure time, the neighbourhood, the bus or the oratory.
Violence, abuses and aggressions are usually intentional, so done with the intention to provoke and make fun of the victims.
It is a persistent behaviour: these actions, if not blocked, last longer: weeks, months or years.
There is an imbalance of power between the victim and the tormentor: for reasons of ages, power, gender and popularity of whom prevaricate among the group.
Who is bullied is usually not able to defence, he/she is isolated and afraid to report those actions to avoid any sort of revenge.
