Stand Up

Research from America, the United Kingdom and Australia is clear; everyone involved in a bullying situation gets hurt.

Dr. Michael Turner’s research (Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of North Carolina) found that children who are bullied are more likely to end up in jail. In fact, they are more than two times more likely to serve time in prison. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2382641/Victims-bullying-MORE-likely-end-jail-bullied–affects-women-men.html?ito=feeds-newsxml Other research finds that bully victims are more likely to suffer from depression, abuse alcohol and even earn less over the course of their lifetime. http://www.bbc.com/news/education-23756749

According to Professor William E. Copeland of Duke University Medical Center and Professor Dieter Wolke of the University of Warwick bullies suffer too. http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/newsandevents/pressreleases/the_long_shadow/ His research finds that bullies are more likely to have been fired from jobs, to be in a violent relationship and to be involved in risky or illegal behavior, such as getting using drugs, fighting, lying and having one-night stands with strangers.

Just witnessing bullying is enough to bring about longterm pain. Bystanders are at risk of anxiety, stress, guilt substance abuse and difficulty with interpersonal relationships. Often these emotions collide into acts of aggressive retaliation.
