Sammanfattning (abstract):
The main aim of the present study was to describe adolescents’ perceptions and experiences of bullying: their thoughts about why children and adolescents are bullied, their ideas about why some bully others and what they believe is important in order to stop bullying. The adolescents were asked about experiences throughout their school years. The study group comprised 119 high school students, with a mean age of 17.1 (SD=1.2). Thirty-nine percent of the adolescents reported that they had been bullied at some time during their school years and twenty-eight percent that they had bullied others; thirteen percent reported being both victims and bullies. The age period during which most students had been bullied at school was between 7 and 9 years. The bullies reported that most of the bullying took place when they were 10 to 12 years old. The most common response the adolescents gave for why individuals are bullied was that bullied individuals have a different appearance. The participants believe that bullying individuals suffer from low self-esteem. The most common response the adolescents gave to the question “What do you think makes bullying stop?” was that the bully matures. The next most frequent response was related to the victim standing up for himself/herself. The adolescents that were uninvolved in bullying during their school years had a much stronger belief in the idea that victims can stand up for themselves than the victims themselves had.
