Empathic Tendency İn The Peer Bullying Groups


The main purpose of this study is to investigate the frequency of occurrence of being a victim, bully, bullyvictim and non among secondary school students and examine the possibility of reliably discriminating between bullies, victims, bully/victims and non-bully/non-victims, based on emotional and cognitive empathy. A total of 340 Turkish middle school students participated in this study. They were attending 6th, 7th and 8th grades in İzmir and Malatya. The KA-SI Empathic Tendency Scale and the Peer Bullying Scale were used data regarding sample. In the analysis of data, descriptive statistics and discriminant function analysis were used. The results showed that a substantial number of children were identified as “victim” (%26.9), as “bully-victims” (%60.8), as “bullies” (3.7%) and as “non bully/non victim” (8.6%). The most common form of bullying was verbal bullying (33.6%), followed by physcial bullying (29.3%). Sexual bullying was the least common form of bullying (14.8%). Results of a discriminant function analysis demonstrated that cognitive empathy and emotional empathy formed a linear separation between the comparison group, the victim group, the bully group, and the bully/victim group and non bully/non victim group.
