Does Low Self-Regard Invite Victimization?
Egan, Susan K.; Perry, David G.
Developmental Psychology, v34 n2 p299-309 Mar 1998
Tested hypotheses that low self-regard contributes over time to peer victimization and that behavioral vulnerabilities are more likely to lead to victimization when children have low self-regard than when they have healthy self-regard. Found that both hypotheses were supported with third through seventh graders, especially when self-regard was assessed in terms of peer social competence. (Author/KB)
