Although researchers have traditionally distinguished between. direct (e.g., name-calling, hitting) and indirect (e.g., ignoring, scapegoating) types of peer-victimization, there remains disagreement concerning how best to categorize types of peer-victimization. The aim of the present study was to delineate, using Principal Components Analysis, types of peer-victimization and to develop a multidimensional psychometric self-report scale. Respondents were 812 children aged 11 to 16 years and attending a secondary school in England. Once it was established that respondents were familiar with a definition:of bullying, they rated how often they had experienced 45 different victimizing acts. Four main factors were identified-physical victimization, verbal victimization, social manipulation, and attacks on property-and subscales constructed that possessed satisfactory internal consistency and convergent validity with self-reports of being bullied.
