Berger, Christian; Poteat, V. Paul; Dantas, Julio – Journal of School Violence, 2019
Empowering students to report peer victimization is a major part of bullying intervention.

Among 572 students in four Chilean high schools, we…

Hinduja, Sameer; Patchin, Justin W. – Journal of School Violence, 2019

As such, a survey was distributed to a representative sample of U.S.…

The present study assesses health consequences in young adulthood of…
