The Psychological Toll Of Childhood Bullying Can Persist For Decades

The Psychological Toll Of Childhood Bullying Can Persist For Decades | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

A new study in the American Journal of Psychiatry finds what others had hinted at but not quite arrived at: That the effects of childhood bullying can last not only through adolescence and young adulthood, but also through middle age. Earlier studies had shown the negative psychological and social effects of bullying to be evident into a person’s 20s, but the new research tracked the psychological health and cognitive function of once-bullied kids till they were 50. And the effects of bullying – particularly of severe bullying – affected a person’s well-being in a great number of ways. All the more reason, the authors urge, to take bullying just as seriously as we would any other form of childhood abuse.

ESRC's insight:

The study tracked over 7,700 children whose families were part of the British National Child Development Study, also known as the 1958 Birth Cohort Study, which captures data from all the children born within one week in 1958 in England, Scotland, and Wales. 


The Birth Cohort Study was funded by the ESRC.
