Bullying is defined as the use of one’s strength or popularity to injure, threaten, or embarrass another person. Bullying can be physical, verbal, or social. (Cornell, 2012; SCBS) Anonymous self-reporting of bullying or victimization taps into the student’s perspective and is thus more likely to reflect intentionality and power imbalance (Furlong et al., 2010). It provides the opportunity for those victimized to report bullying that may not be known other than to the student victimized and the perpetrator (Shaw et al., 2013). This module assess bullying in all its forms, including “cyber bullying” from multiple perspectives: bully, victim and witness.
