Research Paper About Bullying
Results suggest the importance of assessing and addressing multiple contextual risk factors in adolescents attending alternative high schools to provide comprehensive intervention for students in these settings. Few studies have examined the relationship between bullying and mental health in populations of children with CF.
However, there is a lack of rigorous scholarship that could demonstrate directionality and therefore further augment our understanding of these relations. American Journal of Orthopsychiatry, 88(4), 399-401. This is an introduction to the special issue “Bullying and Peer Victimization of Vulnerable, Marginalized, and Oppressed Youth.” The study findings included in this special issue reveal that bias-based bullying and harassment are global social problems. African-American youth (n = 638) completed a self-administered questionnaire on age, biological sex, socioeconomic status, lifetime substance use, peer victimization and bullying perpetration, negative peer norms, and internalizing problems. Their mean age was 15.33 years (SD = 1.65), the mean time since diagnosis was 7.97 years (SD = 3.91), and 49.7% experienced at least 1 kind of peer exclusion in school.
There are important policy implications for considering the mental well-being of youth who are caught carrying guns at school and considering that victimization varies by ethnicity and gender.
