Ethnicity, Peer Harassment, and Adjustment in Middle School: An Exploratory Study.
Graham, Sandra; Juvonen, Jaana
Journal of Early Adolescence, v22 n2 p173-99 May 2002
Examined peer groups and school ethnic composition as risk factors for peer harassment during early adolescence. Peers nominated aggressive and harassed students and reported self-perceived loneliness, social anxiety, and global self-esteem. Found that deviations from normative perceptions of a person's peer group were particularly detrimental to psychological and social adjustment. (Author/DLH)
