Monopoli, W. John; Margherio, Samantha M.; Evans, Steven W.; Xiang, Joe; Brickner, Megan A.; Langberg, Joshua M. – Journal of School Violence, 2020
Youth with ADHD are more at-risk for peer victimization than their typically developing peers, and may not be benefiting from current interventions. Thus, we sought to examine risk (i.e., anxiety, depression, and forms of aggression) and protective (i.e., social skills and social acceptance) factors for peer victimization in this group.…

Following high-profile school shootings, policymakers and educators seek ways to prevent such shootings, but there has been little research on school-level responses in the immediate aftermath of such events. This study examines how school-level security measures and practices changed after the 1999 Columbine shooting using a nationally…

Docherty, Meagan; Sweeten, Gary; Craig, Tyleia; Yang, Vevette J. H.; Decrop, Romain; Beardslee, Jordan; Piquero, Alex; Clark, Catie; Pardini, Dustin – Journal of School Violence, 2020
Although studies have identified risk factors for adolescent handgun carrying, previous research on risk factors for carrying a handgun to school specifically is sparse. This study examines self-report data from 122,840 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students from 426 schools across Arizona, from three survey administrations (2014, 2016, and 2018). In…

Maeng, Jennifer L.; Cornell, Dewey; Huang, Francis – Journal of School Violence, 2020
Threat assessment has been proposed as a method for schools to respond to student threats of violence that does not rely on exclusionary discipline practices (e.g., suspension, transfer, expulsion, arrest). The present study compared disciplinary consequences for 657 students in 260 schools using the Comprehensive Student Threat Assessment…

Cobbina, Jennifer E.; Galasso, Matthew; Cunningham, Mary; Melde, Chris; Heinze, Justin – Journal of School Violence, 2020
School safety is a key feature of the learning environment. Research suggests if students perceive their environment as unsafe they will face a myriad of possible detrimental consequences. Using qualitative interviews, we explore the factors most consistently identified by students as important in their feelings of safety. We examine whether the…

Burnette, Anna Grace; Konold, Timothy; Cornell, Dewey – Journal of School Violence, 2020
Virginia law mandates the use of threat assessment in all public schools, yet there is little research on grade-level differences. This study investigated a statewide sample of 3,282 threats from 1,021 schools. Threats significantly differed across grade level in demographics, characteristics, and outcome. As grade increased, students were more…

Tremblay-Perreault, Amélie; Hébert, Martine – Journal of School Violence, 2020
Sexual abuse and peer victimization often co-occur and generate similar repercussions. The current study aimed to determine the extent to which child sexual abuse is associated to peer victimization. The unique contribution of these two distinct forms of victimization to the prediction of behavior problems was also investigated in a sample of 532…

We evaluated the effectiveness of Boston vs. Bullies, a short-term, free, bullying prevention program that uses celebrity athletes to present content. Fifth-grade students in 10 schools were randomized to either complete the Boston vs. Bullies intervention (n = 388), or to a wait-list control group (n = 266). Pre- and post-surveys assessed…

Kulig, Teresa C.; Cullen, Francis T.; Wilcox, Pamela; Chouhy, Cecilia – Journal of School Violence, 2019
Self-control has provided a useful framework for understanding both offending behavior and victimization risk. As a theory of victimization, research has established that low self-control is directly related to victimization risk beyond a range of other factors. This finding raises the issue of whether other personality traits are associated with…

Pastrana, Freddie A.; Craig, James T.; Gregus, Samantha J.; Hernandez Rodriguez, Juventino; Bridges, Ana J.; Cavell, Timothy A. – Journal of School Violence, 2019
Repeated victims of school bullying are at risk for maladjustment and could potentially benefit from selective intervention. However, selective intervention requires a practical method for accurately identifying members of the targeted group. We examined the extent to which the global victimization item from the Olweus Bully/Victim Questionnaire…

Parris, Leandra; Varjas, Kris; Meyers, Joel; Henrich, Chris; Brack, Jane – Journal of School Violence, 2019
Student responses to bullying have an effect on subsequent outcomes. Dichotomous theories of coping suggest that self-reliance plays a role in responding to stress. In order to investigate the multidimensional nature of coping with bullying, the authors developed the Coping with Bullying Scale for Children. The current study also examined the…

Garner, Pamela W.; Waajid, Badiyyah – Journal of School Violence, 2019
Sociodemographic variables may have important implications for understanding the role of global and discrete-level emotion regulation ability in the prediction of elementary school children's peer victimization. We tested this hypothesis in a sample of 109 elementary school children from economically and racially diverse backgrounds. There was a…
