Bullying Experience and Effects: UK Evidence

Scoop.it ShareThis


This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science. It is hosted by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies in collaboration with the Anti-Bullying Alliance.

About the event

Being a victim of childhood bullying can stick with you for life. Longitudinal studies – which follow people through their entire lives – are leading sources of evidence on which groups are most at risk, and the lasting effects victimisation can have.

In the lead-up to Anti-Bullying Week 2015, the Centre for Longitudinal Studies and the Anti-Bullying Alliance invite campaigners, schools, local authorities and others to discuss the latest evidence on how bullying is affecting children and young people.

This seminar will cover the latest longitudinal research on:

  • the role of evidence in campaigns
  • the prevalence of bullying among disabled children and young people
  • the scarring effects of childhood bullying on adult mental health and labour market performance
  • associations between being a victim of bullying and life satisfaction
  • the prevalence of bullying among lesbian, gay, and bisexual young people.

Please review the Agenda – Bullying Experience and Effects (pdf).

    Dr Morag Henderson,

    Senior Research Officer

    My main research interest is to explain educational inequality. In particular I am interested in possible explanations which include parenting practices, the exposure to multiple adversities and the effect of particular interventions such as Educational Welfare Officers and Social Workers on young people's life outcomes. I am a quantitative sociologist and I use secondary datasets such as Next Steps (formally the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England) to conduct my analysis.
