This chapter presents a history of research on face-to-face peer bullying, provides a definition of bullying that is used throughout this volume, and differentiates bullying from other types of peer conflict. It discusses factors that contribute to bullying across a number of contexts including individual characteristics, family characteristics, and school characteristics. It presents recent statistics on the extent of and types of face-to-face bullying in schools and discusses which children and youth are at greatest risk of becoming victims of bullying. It discusses the educational and emotional consequences for victims, the bullies themselves, as well as those who are both bullies and victims (i.e., “bully-victims”). The chapter concludes with a discussion of several important developments in recent research on bullying that challenge some commonly held perceptions: the socially connected, popular bully; the critical role of peers who witness bullying; and the ways in which teachers and other adults in school perceive and respond to bullying incidents.
