Bullying has long-term health consequences

Whether at school or in leisure time - bullying leaves its traces into adulthood

Bullying at school or in leisure time always has consequences for children and is a serious problem for schools. There are hardly any victims who can survive mental or physical violence without any health effects. Many get sick or prefer to leave school out of shame and fear.

A study published by the University of Warvik's psychology faculty on bullying in children in the journal "Phsycological Science" found that they have increasing problems in developing or maintaining social relationships in adulthood.

These were either victims or full plug of emotional and physical violence.

There were increased health consequences for the victims of bullying, but also for the perpetrators. They get sick more often and more severely. The effects cannot be overlooked even in later working life. Many of you have poorly paid jobs and are unable to establish social contacts with your colleagues. The researchers also recorded an increased penchant for risky and criminal behavior. However, the negative effects are not as pronounced in children who were only perpetrators. (fr)
