CAVALCANTI, Jaqueline Gomes et al. Vitimization and Perception of Bullying: Relationship with Depressive Symptoms of Adolescents. Rev. Psicol. IMED [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.1, pp. 140-159. ISSN 2175-5027.

The present study aimed to comprehend the relationship between victimization, perception about bullying and depressive symptomatology in the adolescent's school context. For this, a sample of 243 adolescents with a mean age of 14.81 (SD = 1.41) was counted. These responded to the School Bullying Perceptions Scale, the California Bullying Victimization Scale, and the Child Depression Inventory (CDI-20). The main results pointed to the effects of victimization on the perception of coping with bullying and on depressive symptomatology. It was also found that female high school students who feel safe at school had a greater perception of coping with bullying. On the other hand, the male students of elementary school who feel insecure at school present themselves as the most victimized. As for the depressive symptomatology, the students of the elementary school and who feel insecure in the school, pointed to higher indices. In addition, it is believed that these findings can contribute to a theoretical and conceptual deepening about bullying and its correlate with depression in adolescent students. It is hoped that the results of this study may contribute to the implementation of public policies aimed at health promotion of this identity group.
