Carney, Jolynn V.
School Psychology International, v21 n2 p213-23 May 2000
Investigates perceptions of adolescents concerning relationship between chronic peer abuse and suicidal behavior, contending chronic peer abuse is a risk factor for adolescent suicidal behavior. Results upheld this contention, adding that bystander perceptions supported victims' views. Suggests interventions to stop bullying should be expanded to include bystanders who might very well experience problematic consequences from observing abuse of their peers. (JDM)
