The Interrelationships of Behavioral Indices of Bully and Victim Behavior.
Gottheil, Neil F.; Dubow, Eric F.
A study was designed to identify the potential contributory effects of different social information perspectives on the stability of bully and victim social roles and the interrelationships of three behavioral indices of bully and victim behavior. Students (N=120) from grades 5 and 6 completed behavioral indices of bully and victim behavior. Seventeen classes from four different schools in predominately Caucasian, low-to-moderate economic status neighbors participated. The interrelationship among the victim behavior indices supported the notion that victimized children tended to both recognize how they were perceived by others and agreed with the perceptions of their peer group, yet disagreed with the characterization. Additional descriptive information is provided, including a measure of children's perceived peer perspective and the clinical implications of using all three behavioral indices.
