All about bullying

This section gives links to tools and research about all aspects of bullying.

We have tried to include as many useful tools as possible but these pages are not exhaustive and inclusion does not necessarily imply endorsement or recommendation by the ABA.  If you would like to suggest resources to be added to this website please email

These pages are continuously updated. As we have just launched this new site some pages will be incomplete but keep checking back.

What is bullying?

It is important that schools have a shared definition of bullying

ABA defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power. It can happen face to face or online.
