In this article, we define the bullying phenomenon and its evolution - i.e. cyberbullying – beginning from the premise that it constitutes a form of maladaptive socialization and that many studies identify a connection between emotional competence and social skills. The distinctive features that make it possible to identity the phenomenon of traditional bullying or cyberbullying may be intentionality, asymmetry, persistence and reiteration over time. Subsequently, we describe the main actors involved: bullies, victims and spectators, each of whom plays his or her own role with outcomes that heavily affect the personality and identity of those concerned. In the conclusions, we provide some data describing the Italian and international scenario.

Abstract

In this article, we define the bullying phenomenon and its evolution - i.e. cyberbullying – beginning from the premise that it constitutes a form of maladaptive socialization and that many studies identify a connection between emotional competence and social skills. The distinctive features that make it possible to identity the phenomenon of traditional bullying or cyberbullying may be intentionality, asymmetry, persistence and reiteration over time. Subsequently, we describe the main actors involved: bullies, victims and spectators, each of whom plays his or her own role with outcomes that heavily affect the personality and identity of those concerned. In the conclusions, we provide some data describing the Italian and international scenario.
