The vast amount of literature on the subject of bullying victimisation has well-informed practitioners, educators and academics of the short and long term negative outcomes for victims.Of equal concern, however, are the abundant and profound long term deleterious outcomes for serial bullies. As such, the elevated risk of bullies developing psycho pathologies and antisocial behaviours into adulthood presents serious challenges for the criminal justice system due to the increased propensity to commit serious violent crimes and other offences. This paper will distill and systematically examine published literature in order to provide a criminological perspective of the serial bully thus highlighting the need for early identification, and improved interventions and treatments for these individuals.
