Peer Aggression and Well-being Study Method and Participants

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The Peer Aggression and Well-being (PAWB) study used a mixed method research design. Different educational systems and school practices are highlighted and participants and measuring instruments are described in this chapter. Researchers in each study location provided data on approximately 600 respondents that they deemed representative of middle-school students aged 11-16 years. Following translations and piloting, respondents completed the Student Aggression and Victimisation Questionnaire (SAVQ) (Skrzypiec, 2015), which was incorporated in the PAWB questionnaire booklet. The SAVQ contains 20 aggressive actions that may have been experienced by victims or perpetrated by aggressors. Students who affirmed such experiences self-reported the intended harm, power imbalance, frequency, relationship, and place where the experience occurred. Students’ resilience, global self-concept and subjective well-being, as well as demographics were also measured.
