Bullying can cause serious harm. Bullying causes a number of social, physical and mental health problems.

Compared to children who report involvement with bullying problems:

  • Children who are bullied suffer more headaches, stomachaches, depression, anxiety and panic. Mental health problems associated with bullying tend to last until much later in life.
  • Children who bully, and those who are bullied, are at greater risk of suicide.

According to one of the world's leading researchers on bullying, 60 percent of boys who frequently bullied others in elementary school had criminal records by the age of 24.

Children do not grow out of bullying. Without intervention, a significant number of youth who bully in childhood will continue to bully as they move through adolescence and into adulthood.

New forms of aggression emerge.  

a) As children become aware of others' vulnerabilities. Bullying then diversifies into more sophisticated forms in adolescence and adulthood.

b) Types of bullying:
- verbal
- social
- homophobic
- sexual
- racial
- physical

The destructive lessons learned in childhood about the negative use of power may translate into sexual harassment in the workplace, dating violence, marital abuse, child abuse, and elder abuse.

Hypnosis can be one of the most powerful interventions when dealing with subjective emotional attachments.
