The study led by researchers at Duke Medicine in Durham, North Carolina has found based on more than 20 years of data from a large group of participants initially enrolled as adolescents, are the most definitive to date in establishing the long-term psychological effects of bullying. Published online in JAMA Psychiatry, the study belies a common perception that bullying, while hurtful, inflicts a fleeting injury that victims outgrow, the Science Daily reported. "This psychological damage doesn`t just go away because a person grew up and is no longer bullied. This is something that stays with them. If we can address this now, we can prevent a whole host of problems down the road," lead author William E Copeland was quoted as saying.
