Abstract This study involved 94 persons (31 men and 63 women) who consulted for bullying between June 1999 and December 2001 in a hospital department specializing in treating patients suffering from various forms of mental distress due to occupational factors. Patients were subjected to clinical examinations and responded to a 300-item questionnaire. Data were analysed to shed light on the following factors: characteristics of the victims of bullying (by sex, family situation, age and level of education); characteristics of the enterprises where the bullying took place (sectors of activity, working conditions, work organization); how the bulling process is initiated; characteristics of the bullying perpetrators (sex, hierarchical level); bullying techniques; consequences of bullying.
