Boulton, Michael J.; Trueman, Mark; Chau, Cam; Whitehand, Caroline; Amatya, Kishori
Journal of Adolescence, v22 n4 p461-66 Aug 1999
Study examined the associations between peer reports of victimization and self-reported friendship among early adolescents. Study was conducted to test the "friendship protection hypothesis" stating friendship provides protection against victimization. Three sets of findings were consistent with the hypothesis. Implications of these results for anti-bullying initiatives based on "befriending" principles are discussed. (Author/JDM)
