Teasing among School-Age Children.
Nacev, Vladimir; Brubach, April
Teasing is an attempt to look better at the expense of someone else. This abuse may be as mild as verbal bantering or as severe as group violence against others. The chronically oppressed student may conclude that school is a frightening and unfriendly place. Teasing has recently become the focus of psychological research and this paper provides a theoretical framework to help understand the developmental process of those who bully. Research on family dynamics reports that the absence of a father is a factor for the children involved in bullying. Data also suggests that aggressive youth have experienced more punitive, hostile, and abusive family treatment than their peers. The paper highlights research that suggests that a school-based intervention program produced promising results in reducing bullying and victim problems. (Contains 23 references.) (JDM)
