Many youngsters are targets of verbal and physical abuse or social ostracism at some point during their school careers, and a minority are repeatedly victimized by their peers. Which students become the targets of aggressive behavior, and why? What are the psychological and health consequences of victimization? Of crucial importance, what can school professionals do to help? This volume brings together leading investigators to present the latest psychological research on chronically victimized children and adolescents. Chapters review conceptual and methodological issues, identify developmental differences in types of harassment, and explore various reaction patterns associated with victimization. Findings are presented on the correlates and consequences of harassment, from peer rejection to compromised mental and physical health, as well as its role in peer group dynamics. Highlighting the practical implications of current research, the volume discusses a number of school- based prevention and intervention approaches.

'This volume provides an important new focus for the field that goes beyond aggression and peer rejection. Leading researchers consider many levels of children's victimization or harassment of one another, addressing the form and impact impact of these behaviors among individuals, dyads, groups, classrooms, and families. Illuminating the dark side of children's peer relationships, this scholarly and provocative work will be valuable to school practitioners, researchers, and undergraduate and graduate-level students.' - Carolyn U. Shantz, PhD, Wayne State University 'Jaana Juvonen, Sandra Graham and their colleagues have written an engaging and powerful book. The chapters both inform and pose timely challenges to scholars who have an interest in theory, research and professional practice regarding peer victimization. The international scope of the book, in particular, enables scholars to broaden their understanding of the topic beyond traditional boundaries.' - Journal of Moral Education Janna Juvonen and Sandra Graham deserve applause from practitioners and researchers in the fields of education psychology, social psychology, and sociology for their careful and scholarly editorship ... The volume is attractively laid out and includes contributions from most of the active researchers and thinkers currently addressing harassment among young people ... The editors selected top writers and researchers in the field and attained an excellent international perspective of the domain of peer harassment. I highly recommend it. - John Hoover in Comtemporary Psychology APA Review of Books, 2003 Vol 48 No 6
