 Article 1“Consequences of Bullying Behavior”

Throughout the chapter “ Consequences of bullying behavior” in the book “Preventing Bullying Through Science, Policy, and Practice.” bullying has become a behavior among “school aged children and adolescents, bullying comes in all different forms such as an “ individual who bullies, the individual who is bullied and bullies others, and the bystander present during the bullying event.” The chapter expresses the physical health consequences, somatic symptoms, stress, the consequences of bullying on the brain function, social pain, and much more. This is relevant information because there is always going to be bullying. Bullying comes from one’s household, no one is perfect we do not this in a utopian society where everything we do has to follow a routine and everyone acts the same we are always going to have some bad apples that unfortunately act and think the way they do and that does affect the child where it’s something they learn from the parent or use bullying as a way to let out their frustration they would like to show their parents but can not.


Article 2 “How Does Bullying Affect the Bully?”

Throughout the  article “How Does Bullying Affect the Bully?” By Lorna Blumen in Bullying Prevention Tips, Raising Emotionally Healthy Kids, School Bullying, expressed the opposing side of bullying which is not the victims but the bully. The article includes research published in JAMA Psychiatry that show the numerous psychiatric issues that include depression, anxiety, panic disorder, suicidal thought behaviors and agoraphobia a bully could obtain in their lifetime. When one thinks about bullying we think about the one who is being bullied and of course we should focus on the victim but shouldn’t ignore how they bully might be affected by their own actions. This becomes relevant because the way a child is raised can affect who they become later on in life.


Article 3 “The long-term effects of being bullied or a bully in adolescence on externalizing and internalizing mental health problems in adulthood”

Throughout the article “The long-term effects of being bullied or a bully in adolescence on externalizing and internalizing mental health problems in adulthood” in the book “child and adolescent psychiatry and mental health” this chapter shows the effect of being bullied and being the bully and the mental toll it leaves behind for each side of the story meaning the victim of bullying and the bully. It is very important to know the emotional and physical toll that bullying and being a bully leaves on a person because most if not all of these negative tolls greatly impact one’s life

    I agree that the way that children are raised influences the way they are later on in life. All of the articles you chose to use seem interesting.

    I feel as though there are many advocates against bullying but also not spoken about enough and the articles you chose seem to hit right into the heart of it. I am pretty sure your analytical research will be quite the interesting read.
