Example text

In the United States, bullying is used, which focuses on personal action against one from another individual or a small group of individuals, with an assumption often made by outsiders that aggressors are unpopular or antisocial (an assumption that is often not founded). The differential use of terminology highlights how the interaction between power and status can differ across cultures. Similarly, the strength of group control differs cross countries. Collective cultures, like Japan, and individualistic cultures like the USA differ in the strength of group control.

But we need to be careful not to simply assume that different nations automatically produce different levels or types of bullying. The first large international study on bullying (TMR) brought together 14 countries to collaborate on a common study (Smith et al. 2002).

These researchers used a modified Olweus bullying questionnaire and results revealed that 27% of the elementary and middle school sample reported being bullied sometimes and 10% indicated it happened at least once a week.
