PA086: Teachers Perceptions of Bullying Among Youth: Type and Gender.

Friday, February 21, 2014 11:00 AM–11:50 AM


This session will describe a study that explored the severity of different kinds of bullying situations (physical, verbal, and relational) based on teachers’ perceptions (N=208) in relation to gender of the bully and the victim, as well as the response of the victim (aggressive or passive). Results will be discussed in terms of applied implications for working with teachers in school settings and in terms of directions for future research.
