Card, Noel A.; Hodges, Ernest V. E.
School Psychology Quarterly, v23 n4 p451-461 Dec 2008
Peer victimization among schoolchildren is a common problem that predicts serious maladjustment. In this article, the authors define peer victimization, provide a brief overview of the history of research on the topic, and review prevalence rates, common measurement approaches, and the correlates of peer victimization. This review leads to recommendations for empirically based assessment and intervention. Finally, the authors highlight directions for future research. (Contains 1 table.)
