Bullying is a major problem in many schools and communities worldwide. It includes harassment and intimidation, and concerns physical, verbal or psychological threats. Cyber-bullying also takes great dimensions. Although there have been some projects implemented to collect data and seek the reasons of the existence of this phenomenon, such as Daphne (2006-2008), a programme implemented and co-ordinated by the Association of Psychosocial Health for Children and Adolescents (APHCA) in six countries, bullying has not attracted the attention it should have. One of the reasons is that the victims do not report attacks; another is ignorance and lack of sensitization. This is the case in Greece, where bullying has recently started to become an object of attention, discussion and study. In fact, it is this year that the Ministry of Education has given out a questionnaire to schools to collect data on this major social phenomenon. According to reports, more that 30% of students in Greece have been intimidated, especially those who have a bad relationship with their schoolmates. Within this context, the present study aims to examine the incidents of bullying in Greece, and how it evolves in time. The results are going to be used for bullying awareness and prevention skills among school children.
