Bullying is a common problem in school settings worldwide, causing pain to countless children. Why do bullies hurt their peers? Is bullying the result of maladjusted minds? Or is bullying used strategically to achieve important social goals? The answers may stimulate new ways of thinking about bullying prevention in schools.
Dr. Lynne Zarbatany’s research focuses on peer influences on behavior and adjustment in late childhood and early adolescence. She is interested in identifying social processes used by peer groups to influence their members and explaining why some children are more susceptible to peer group influence than others.
