Abstract [en]

Cross-sectional studies of bullying mask variability in categories of andpersistence of bullying victimization. Longitudinal, individual-level dataoffers a greater insight into schoolchildren’s psychosomatic maladjustmentas a consequence of bullying. Swedish schoolchildren (n = 3,349),with unique identifiers, in 44 schools (4th–9th grade), answered aquestionnaire at baseline and 1-year follow-up. Longitudinal trendsfor nonvictims (88%), ceased victims (4.7%), new victims (5.7%), andcontinuing victims (1.6%) revealed that new victims had the largestdecrease in well-being; continuing victims had a smaller though notsignificant decrease; while ceased victims showed a small, (nonsignificant)increase in well-being over the measurement period. It was alsodiscovered that children not bullied at baseline but bullied subsequently,differed, at baseline, from their never-bullied peers throughlower levels of overall well-being. It is argued that this finding hasimplications for prevention strategies.
