Abstract

Bullying is an issue that has been affecting many in the world today. It takes
place in many forms some of which are direct and include physical harm on the victim.
Verbal bullying involves name calling and insults or threats being directed at the victim and
may also involve emotional bullying where the victim’s emotions are targeted by the bully.
Other forms of bullying may be indirect where the harm is not caused by the person directly
but it still ends up affecting the person.Bullying is a serious problem that is affecting the
academic and social lives of the school going children. In order to understand the problem
and develop an intervention plan that can be used to stop it, it is important to identify the
various forms of bullying that are going on within the schools and the trends they are
taking. It is also important to understand how they have carried out and the effects that arise
from the practice. This will help develop a plan that will be able to establish a safe and
secure environment in the schools for all children.
