The Relationship between Bullying and Social Skills in Primary School Students
Larke, Ian D.; Beran, Tanya N.
Issues in Educational Research, v16 n1 p38-51 2006
In this study we examined the relationship between children's social skills and bullying behaviours. Teachers rated social skills and indirect and direct physical bullying behaviours of 120 students in elementary school. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that social skills are inversely related to both direct physical bullying (beta = -0.61, p less than 0.001) and indirect bullying (beta = -0.50, p less than 0.001). According to teachers' perceptions, children who bully their peers, regardless of the form of bullying they use, lack prosocial skills to effectively manage interpersonal relationships.
