Product Description

Product Description

Both children and adults who experience chronic peer victimization are at considerable risk for a host of adverse psychological consequences, including depression, aggression, even suicidal ideation. Bullying, Rejection, and Peer Victimization is the only book that addresses bullying across the developmental spectrum, covering child, adolescent, and adult populations.

The contributors offer in-depth analyses on traditional aggression and victimization (physical bullying) as well as social rejection (emotional bullying). Peer and family relationships, relational aggression, and cyber-bullying are just a few of the important topics discussed.

Key Features:

  • Analyzes both perpetrator's and victim's sides of the peer victimization experience
  • Explores how gender traits influence aggression
  • Investigates how family dynamics influence chronic peer victimization
  • Examines the relationships between social status, power, and aggression

This text offers a wealth of insight into the experiences of victims of peer bullying, using cutting-edge theoretical perspectives, including social cognition, social ecology, genetics and genetic-environment interactions, and social cognitive neuroscience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very worthwhile! 16 Aug. 2010
By informed_shopper - Published on
The editor of this book presents a vast compilation of clinical research studies on this topic. It is perhaps the only collection of research studies available on the subject of bullying and its effect on the brain published in one volume, and it is one of the best books available on the topic. It is thorough and densely informative. Harris contrasts current psychological, social psychological, and neurological perspectives on bullying, ostracism, and rejection. It is very circumspect. In all, fifteen scientific papers are admitted to the collection. All contributors are distinguished researchers.
5.0 out of 5 stars An important read 28 Jan. 2014

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The essays in this book are groundbreaking, and need to move into mainstream discussions around bullying. Although written for an academic audience, the research and insights have tremendous bearing on how we should respond to rejection and shame.
