Note: We urge people to use research about negative outcomes of bullying behavior with care. Inundating youth with predictions of inevitable and severe negative outcomes can have unintended negative effects, including developing a sense of helplessness in bullied youth. In addition, fear-based messaging to youth, involving prediction of rare, severe outcomes, has been largely ineffective in many areas of prevention.
