The purpose of this chapter is to provide an understanding of the various factors that are associated with bullying, at different levels within a child or adolescent’s world. These factors include: individual characteristics such as age, gender, race, peer relationships, family dynamics, the school environment, and broader societal variables. The following three key principles of bullying (based on the work of Debra Pepler and Wendy Craig) are briefly reviewed: 1) bullying is wrong and hurtful; 2) bullying is a relationship problem; and 3) promoting relationships and eliminating violence is everybody’s responsibility.

Keywords:   age, gender, race, peer relationships, family dynamics, school
