Relationen mellan retrospektiv mobbning, livstillfredsställelse och riskbeteenden (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine the relation between previously experienced bullying with students’ current risk behaviors. The participants were 341 university students in Sweden and the data were collected with a web-based survey. The results showed that students with high experiences of previous bullying were less satisfied with their lives today than students with low experiences of bullying. In addition, male students who experienced bullying in childhood had higher levels of risk behaviors today, whereas female students who experienced bullying in adolescence had higher levels of risk behaviors today. This could be discussed by the fact that relational bullying, which is more common among females, occurs the most in adolescence, while physical bullying, which is more common among males, occurs mostly in childhood. Future research should control for sensation seeking and risk behaviors in adolescence, as well as the effects of cyberbullying.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka relationen mellan tidigare upplevd mobbning och studenters riskbeteenden idag. Deltagarna bestod av 341 universitetsstudenter i Sverige och datainsamlingen genomfördes via en webbaserad enkät. Resultatet visade att studenter som tidigare hade upplevt högre nivåer av mobbning var mindre nöjda med sina liv idag jämfört med studenter som hade upplevt lägre nivåer av mobbning. Dessutom hade manliga studenter som hade upplevt mobbning i barndomen högre riskbeteenden idag, medan kvinnliga studenter som hade upplevt mobbning i tonåren hade högre riskbeteenden idag. Detta kan diskuteras genom att indirekt mobbning, som är vanligare hos kvinnor, oftast uppstår under tonåren, medan fysisk mobbning, som är vanligare hos män, oftast uppstår under barndomen. Framtida forskning borde kontrollera för sensationssökande och riskbeteenden i tonåren, samt effekterna av nätmobbning.
