Cyber-Victimization and Its Psychosocial Consequences: Relationships with Behavior Management and Traditional Bullying
Mindrila, Diana; Moore, Lori; Davis, Pamela
Journal of Research in Education, v25 n2 p53-61 2015
The current study investigated the relationship between behavior management, traditional bullying, cyber-victimization, and several psychosocial consequences of cyber-victimization. Findings from previous research were used to specify a complex path model, which allowed the simultaneous estimation of multiple direct and indirect effects. Data were collected in 2011 by the U.S. National Center for Education Statistics and the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics using the School Crime Supplement of the National Crime Victimization Survey (N = 498). Results showed that being a victim of traditional bullying was a significant predictor of cyber-victimization. Further, increased levels of cyber-victimization predicted higher levels of fear and avoiding behaviors, having fewer friends, carrying a weapon, and, in turn, engagement into physical conflicts. Nevertheless, an effective behavior management at the school level predicted lower levels of cyber-victimization through the reduction of traditional bullying.
