This research was carried out to examine perceived social support in adolescence and bullying. 112 females and 171 males (in total 283) attending different types of high schools were used in this research. The sample group includes students who were referred to guidance and counseling service as bullies. According to the research results; when examining the path diagram between family support and peer support, and mocking and property aggression, family support predicts mocking positively but predicts property aggression negatively. At the same time, peer support predicts mocking which is the sub-dimension of bullying negatively. On the other hand, family support which is the sub-dimension of the perceived multi-dimensional social support predicts social bullying which is the dimension of bullying scale positively; peer support and special support which are the sub-dimension of the perceived multi-dimensional social support predict bullying negatively.
