Bullying includes a wide range of actions, including physical violence, name-calling and insults, teasing, humiliation, verbal or written threats, and extortion (intimidating someone to get money or other valuables from them).

However, those same principles could be applied to learning to control violence. However, no sociological theories have explored that aspect of social learning.
