Experiences of school bullying, psychological well-being and stress in Northern Ireland: Data from the 2005 Young Life and Times Survey

Region:
Description:

Comparatively little is known about the nature, incidence and correlates of bully/victim problems in the Northern Ireland school system. The present study examined the prevalence of self-reported experiences of bully/victim problems and the relationship between such experiences and levels of stress and psychological well-being among a representative sample of 819 16 year olds who participated in the 2005 ‘Young Life and Times Survey’ (YLTS: ARK, 2006). Bully/victim problems among these adolescents were pervasive. Personal experience of involvement in bully/victim problems was associated with self-reported stress and impaired psychological well-being. Findings are interpreted within the context of previous data from YLTS and the wider national and international literature on bully/victim problems.
