Abstract

Summary: The aims of this research were: 1. to assess the prevalence of bullying problems in a clinic sample; 2. to examine differences in emotional measures between bullied and control groups i.e. to assess whether there is a particular pattern of emotional distress associated with being bullied; and 3. to assess the effectiveness of a group intervention for victims of bullying in reducing emotional distress. The results revealed that the prevalence of bullying was higher in the clinic population than in non clinical studies. There was little difference between the groups in terms of psychological symptomatology. However, bullied patients scored significantly lower on the subscale of social acceptance on the Self-Perception Rating scale (Harter, 1985). The group intervention for victims of builying was found to result in reduced depression, anxiety and hopelessness but it was not possible to test this statistical1y as pre- and post-data were only available for three individuals. The results are discussed with reference to the literature.
