A longitudinal study on stability and transitions among bullying roles


Zych, Izabela; Llorent, Vicente J; Ttofi, Maria; Farrington, David P; Ribeaud, Denis; Eisner, Manuel P (2020). A longitudinal study on stability and transitions among bullying roles. Child Development, 91(2):527-545.

Abstract

Trajectories of stability and change in bullying roles were examined through a longitudinal prospective study of 916 school students followed up biannually from age 11 to 17. Perpetrators and victims had relatively stable trajectories with most of the children remaining in the same role over time or becoming uninvolved. Bully/victim was the most unstable role with frequent transitions to perpetrators or victims. Developmental change in bullying roles was found with a decrease in physical forms over time in bullies and victims but with persistently high perpetration and victimization in bully/victims. These findings open new horizons in research and practice related to bullying and can be useful for its early detection or design of targeted interventions.
