This is very similar to the third factor defined by Rigby and Slee (1991) and is in line with the reports from other studies. THE BULLY-VICTIM DYAD Increasingly, researchers view bullying and victimisation less as the products of individual characteristics of the bullies and victims separately and more as the manifestation of a unique interaction. Dyads of bullies and victims are common. A special relationship can exist between them, and this is dynamic in that as each makes a change so the other compensates for it, with the bully obtaining the lion’s share of positive reinforcement and the victim just trying to survive as well as possible.

This type of punitive and physical interaction with children and adolescents can result in prolonged aggression as it creates a family environment that produces frustration amongst its members, leading to feelings of anger and hostility. If these feelings are left unresolved, they are likely to produce hostile and aggressive exchanges between parents and their children (Randall, 1996). In addition, it is well known that parental aggressive punishments serve as models of hostility and the inappropriate use of force (Bandura, 1977).

They observed that peer groups encourage bullying by conferring reputations that effectively keep both victims and bullies in their respective roles. Thus if children have negative expectations of another child, they act negatively to that child, which Adult Bullying 26 brings about the reciprocal negative reaction from the victim, thus creating a selffulfilling and circular causality. The evidence suggests that no matter what victims do, even if they change their behaviour to be less negative, their peers take little notice of the changes and continue to respond to them in a stereotypical manner.
