Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the relationship between bullying behavior and psychopathology.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

A total of 1 092 students identified their peers' bullying status based on the Bull-S questionnaire. Parents completed the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) to determine psychopathology levels.

RESULTS:

The bullying group had associations with anxiety, somatic symptoms, oppositionalism and behavior problems; the bully-victims group had associations with attention, oppositionalism and behavior problems; victims had higher anxiety scores.These differences were significant compared with the control group.

CONCLUSIONS:

Bullying is associated with psychopathology, which requires timely psychiatric attention.
