Yeah, your post's a bit vague. If you give us more detail we'll be able to give you better advice.

Banter will only ever effect you if you let it. If it really is insulting or hurtful then you need to ask them to stop.
No one can offer any more help than this without more information on the situation...

Banter can rule and make the workplace stronger. Also I think it is relevant to the industry you work in. The banter you get on a building site would be very different to that in an old person's home.
