Coping Strategies of Secondary School Children in Response to Being Bullied
Naylor, Paul, Cowie, Helen and del Rey, Rosario (2001) Coping Strategies of Secondary School Children in Response to Being Bullied Child Psychology and Psychiatry Review, 6 (03). pp. 114-120.
Through a questionnaire survey, the present study investigated the coping strategies of Year 7 (11–12 years old) and Year 9 (13–14 years old) pupils (N = 324) to find out what strategies they have used to overcome the difficulties of being bullied by peers. Fifty-one UK secondary schools, in each of which an anti-bullying peer support system had been in place for at least a year, participated. The coping strategies of those pupils who said that they had told someone (N = 279) about being bullied were compared with those who said that they had not (N = 45). These coping strategies differ, not only according to whether or not they report the bullying, but also according to their age and gender. Implications of the findings for professionals who work with children and adolescents are suggested.
