New study evaluates the validity of the Bully/Victimization Questionnaire
from Good Therapy
The Bully/Victimization Questionnaire has been used throughout the world to capture the rates of peer bullying and victimization, a social dilemma that has been the focus of much research in recent years. The BVQ provides the respondent with a definition of bullying, describing it as intentional and repeated acts of aggression. The respondent is then instructed to detail any bullying victimization they have experienced. Although this approach is intended to identify victims, the definition of bullying is much more subjective. Jennifer Greif Green of the School of Education at Boston University wanted to see if the BVQ's definition of power imbalance and bullying were in line with individuals' own assessments of bullying.
