Relationships among bully victimization, bully perpetration, ethnic identity, and subjective well-being (i.e., life satisfaction, positive affect, and negative affect) were examined in a group of urban, ethnically diverse early adolescents. Indices of subjective well-being correlated with participants' scores on bully victimization and perpetration measures but bully perpetration was not significantly related to negative affect. The authors used cluster analysis to determine participants' status as either bully-victims, perpetrators, non-participants, or victim-perpetrators. They found significant analysis of variance differences on the variables of interest between bully participants vs. non-participants. This article discusses implications for bully prevention efforts with ethnic minority youth.
