Bullying is defined as the deliberate antagonistic action or the creation of a situation with the intent of inflicting
emotional, physical, or psychological distress. The behavior may be a single (if severe) or repeated act and may be
electronic, verbal, physical, psychological, sexual, social, or indirect. Bullying seeks to secure or maintain an imbalance
of power between the perpetrator(s) and the target(s) and has a reasonable likelihood of emotional, physical or
psychological harm. The harmful effects of bullying may be exacerbated by the interaction of frequency, pervasiveness,
and severity of the behavior(s), in addition to the power differential between the perpetrator(s) and target(s).
