Research on risk and resilience indicates that children exposed to multiple risk factors often report more negative effects than those experiencing only one risk. Studies indicate that victims of bullying (peer victimization) can become aggressive and violent over time. The present research examined whether children in seven New Zealand schools who experienced multiple forms of peer victimization were more likely to engage in bullying others than those who experienced only one form. In this study, 924 students, aged between 7 and 18 years, self-reported exposure to peer victimization and bullying behaviour. A MANCOVA indicated that multiple victims reported more bullying behaviour against others than non-victims and those students who experienced only one form of bullying. Gender and age differences in bullying behaviour were also reported by students. Implications for schools are discussed.
