The present study aims to examine differences among four categories of adolescents –aggressors, pure victims, aggressive victims, and students not involved in behavioural or victimization problems at school– with respect to self-esteem, depressive symptomatology, perceived stress, feeling of loneliness, and a general measure of satisfaction with life.
This research is of keen interest by the study of psychosocial adjustment in the different profiles related to the the problem of bullying. The results point to a better self-esteem and life satisfaction in the case of adolescents involved in the phenomenon of bullying, and low depressive symptoms, perceived stress and loneliness. The assailants showed similar results regarding to self-esteem, depressive symptomatology and loneliness. However, perceived more stress and expressed less satisfaction with their lives as victims, which also showed higher levels of loneliness.
