Bullying victimization and perpetration in a community sample of youth with psychotic like experiences

Prior studies indicate an association between psychotic-like experiences (PLEs) and bullying victimization; however, the most frequent types of bullying victimization and the association with bullying perpetration are unclear. A community sample of 1563 adolescents completed questionnaires examining PLEs and frequency of bullying victimization and perpetration. Compared to adolescents scoring below the psychosis-risk cut-off (n=1294), those with PLEs (who are putatively at-risk) (n=269) were more likely to report being the victims of overt, relational, and reputational bullying and to have perpetrated bullying against others. Increased bullying perpetration among youth with PLEs may reflect reactive aggression in response to being bullied.
