From the Paper:

"Studies have found that bullying has a strong negative impact on the adolescent being bullied, where a wide range of physical, psychological, and social problems tend to manifest as a direct result of continued bullying. Among the symptoms are headaches, abdominal pains, depression, low self- esteem, and even suicidal tendencies. For the student that acts as a bully, it has been noted that: "being a bully in childhood and adolescence has been associated with delinquency in adulthood." (Kaltiala- Heino: 1999) It is also strongly theorized that students that are active as bullies might be more prone to commit acts of severe adolescent violence. Within this paper, the term adolescent violence refers to acts of abnormal physical or verbal violence that are committed by an adolescent in unacceptable social situations.
"Through examining bullying and the impact of being bullied in adolescents, it can be seen that this type of behavior is a problem for all concerned, and researchers and educators alike find a need to become more active in this field due to the increasing frequency and severity of adolescent violence within the schools."
