Analyses examined school-level longitudinal growth models and individual-level pretest-posttest comparisons…

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…

In this study, we applied an evolutionary perspective to analyze the relationship between aggressiveness, academic performance, and sociality in a population of 528 adolescents of both sexes. In men, we expect physical aggression (PA) and sociality to be negative predictors of academic performance. However, in women, PA would be a negative…

Berger, Christian; Poteat, V. Paul; Dantas, Julio – Journal of School Violence, 2019
Empowering students to report peer victimization is a major part of bullying intervention. Nevertheless, although bullying often can be discriminatory (e.g., homophobic), there remains limited attention to how issues of diversity relate to students reporting their victimization experiences. Among 572 students in four Chilean high schools, we…

Hinduja, Sameer; Patchin, Justin W. – Journal of School Violence, 2019
While previous studies have identified that school bullying and cyberbullying victimization among adolescents is associated with suicidal thoughts and attempts, no work has measured the severity of bullying incidents and their impact on the youth at school within that context. As such, a survey was distributed to a representative sample of U.S.…
