Understanding Different Types of Bullying Behavior
The importance of protecting students from bullying has been emphasized through the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) that became a law in New Jersey in January 2011.

Bullying can occur in many different ways. Bullying can be direct (“face to face”) or indirect (“behind someone’s back). The type of bullying can affect the way parents describe or approach their child or, school, about a bullying incident.
Generally, there are four types of bullying behaviors:
  • Verbal – Includes name calling, taunting, constant teasing or making threats;
  • Physical – Includes hitting, punching, shoving, spitting, or taking or damaging personal belongings;
  • Psychological – Includes spreading rumors, purposefully keeping people from activities and
    breaking up friendships or other relationships; and
  • Electronic – Includes using the internet, mobile phone or other electronic equipment to intentionally harm others.
