Defining Bullying: The Role of Neurobiological Markers
by Pieter Rossouw | Jul 17, 2013 | Journal |
.The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
Mediros Clinical Solutions, Unit for Neuropsychotherapy
“Bullying” is a widely used term that is mostly linked to some form of harassment – be it emotional, verbal or physical. These definitions always refer to specific behaviours (the perpetrator perspective) and the emotional and physical harm they inflict (the victim perspective). Although some definitions of bullying refer to physical harm as one consequence, it is noteworthy that no definition specifically refers to neural changes, despite a large body of evidence that shows the detrimental effects on neurochemical production, changes in neural functioning, and neural damage.
This paper explores some core definitions of bullying and key neurobiological markers linked to bullying. These markers are:

'Empathy Gap': Why Some Can't See Bully Victims' Pain
From www.livescience.com - April 27, 2013
Teachers, parents and others underestimate the true pain felt by victims of bullying.
Unless they've experienced it firsthand, people underestimate the social pain endured by victims of bullying, a new study finds. This so-called "empathy gap" can be devastating, the researchers say, because it means victims often don't get the support they need. For instance, a teacher who doesn't truly "get" thesuffering involved in being teased or excluded would be less likely to punish the perpetrator or give support to the victim.
