When translated into a certain language, a word that denotes bullying may refer to the nature and range of bullying behaviors that actually occur in a particular culture, Ijime, for example, as the Japanese term for bullying emphasizes more on psychological and collective nature of the attack (Morita, Soeda, Soeda, and Taki, 1999).
Existem diversos termos que sao utilizados para descrever o assedio moral, por exemplo: bullying, mobbing, harassement, abuso emocional, maus-tratos, incivilidade, agressao, comportamentos hostis, comportamentos inaceitaveis, comportamentos aversivos (Beswick, Gore & Palferman, 2006), psicoterror, terror psicologico (Leymann, 1990; 1996), ijime, whistleblower (Hirigoyen, 2006), abuso emocional, comportamentos hostis, agressao no local de trabalho, dentre outros.
However, the preventive measure for "Ijime and Iyagarase" or workplace harassment at university is not enough in Japan.
