WE must have a national, community, family conversation now about this dysfunctional behaviour – bullying – says University of the South Pacific Psychologist lecturer Professor Ofakilomaloma Swann.

She said it was a tragic national circumstance that it could be seen and heard that bullying was carried out in homes, workplaces, schools, universities and online.
