Bullying, social exclusion anxiety and longing for belonging

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Some practitioners and researchers criticise the concept of bullying and suggest it replaced with e.g. conflict or harassment. We discuss the challenges enacted by the problematisation and propose a joint effort to improve both the conceptualisation and our cooperation in reworking it, while keeping bullying research dynamic and relevant. In our contribution, we view bullying as a socially enacted phenomenon with strong individual effects; we outline what a conceptualisation of bullying should take into account and suggest approaching some basic bullying mechanisms by combining the concepts of longing for belonging and social exclusion anxiety.
