Abstract

AIM:

To investigate the relationship between bullying and (re)offending.

METHOD:

Carrying out bivariate analyses and multivariate analyses (controlling for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), parental abuse and neglect and impulsivity) on three large high-risk groups (male and female juveniles with serious behaviour problems and a group of juvenile sex offenders).

RESULTS:

Only the relationship between bullying victimisation and re-offending in juvenile sex offenders is significant.

CONCLUSIONS:

Addressing bullying as a risk factor for re-offending seems important in treatment of juvenile sex offenders.
