Aggression more common in youth who experience cyber and in-person bullying

May 3, 2016

BALTIMORE — Youth who experienced multiple types of bullying were more likely to exhibit aggressive behaviors than those who experienced only one type of bullying, according to data presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting.

“With the widespread use of cell phones and the Internet, many adolescents may now experience cyber-victimization in addition to face-to-face victimization,” Alexandra Hua, a graduate student at Yale University, and colleagues wrote. “Recent research has shown that victims of peer aggression are themselves at greater risk for victimizing others. There has been limited research examining the many forms of victimization (alone and together) and their association with various types of aggressive behavior.”
