Bullying, Rejection, and Peer Victimization is the only book that addresses bullying across the developmental spectrum, covering child, adolescent, and adult populations.

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.

The contributors to this volume 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.
