Experts refer to psychological bullying as relational aggression. In other words, the bully sets out to damage the victim's relationships with others by affecting how peers view that person. Psychological bullying affects how the victim feels about himself or herself, as well. Readers learn that psychological bullying goes far beyond a one-time snub in the cafeteria or a single dirty look in the hallway. It is a relentless attack that leaves the victims crushed and confused. It can lead to lifelong problems for all involved: the victims, the bullies, and even those who are bystanders to these attacks. Readers examine how it feels to be psychologically bullied and why certain teens are more likely to be targets than others. The text analyzes why teens bully, as well as what victims can do when a bully singles them out for abuse. Additionally, the text discusses what is being done on the local and national level to combat psychological bullying. Although this type of bullying is a complex problem, there are positive steps to take that can make a world of difference to an individual or community.
