Bullying can happen anywhere, anytime and at any point in someone’s life. Although the term bullying is commonly used to describe schoolyard harassment, many adults face verbal bullying by neighbors, employers, fellow employees and others.
Verbal bullying is one of the most difficult forms of bullying to see as there are no bruises or scars, but victims often develop anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and other mental health problems.

What is Verbal Bullying?
Verbal bullying is the most common form of bullying, many times this form of harassment is a precursor to physical altercations or other types of bullying such as social or online bullying.
Some types of adolescent verbal bullying include:
- Name calling
- Verbal threats of physical abuse
Verbal bullying at work or by neighbors often involves similar vocal abuse, but may also include:
- Being humiliated in public
- Verbal threats or intimidation
- Spreading gossip
- Threats to professional status
- Racial epithets
According to a large scale study published in the School Psychology Review, more than 40 percent of middle school students have experienced name calling and teasing. Additionally, 36 percent of respondents had rumors and lies spread about them by other students.
It is important to recognize that verbal bullying cannot be seen, many times victims will avoid school or work in order to avoid the bully. Some victims may even turn to drugs or alcohol to cope with the abuse.
Anyone who is close to someone who may be a victim should pay close attention to any changes in mood or behavior and talk with the victim to determine if they are being bullied.
