Bullying Victims: The Effects Last into College
Adams, Frank D.; Lawrence, Gloria J.
American Secondary Education, v40 n1 p4-13 Fall 2011
This study examined whether those bullied in schools continued to show the effects of being bullied after they enrolled in an institution of higher education. There were 269 undergraduate students participating in the study. Previous studies (2006; 2008) conducted by the authors suggested the effects of bullying upon both the victim and bully are long lasting; victims of bullying at the college level indicated histories of being bullied throughout their school years. The results of this study suggest bullying in junior high and/or high school continues into college; the negative effects associated with being victimized or acting as the bully continue into the college years.
