- Screening for children who engage in bullying as well as those who are the victims of bullying.
- Develop individual clinical profiles to understand and treat the psychological underpinnings of bullying and victimization when administered with other instruments like the Beck Youth Inventories.
These three self-report, standardised instruments form a comprehensive picture of a child’s experience of peer-related threat, level of distress and anxiety related to school safety. Results can provide benchmarks for identifying a child for intervention, or for identifying what students perceive as a threatening or unsafe school environment.
- Bully-Victimization Scale (BVS) The BVS provides for the identification of youngsters who are being bullied and students who engage in bullying behaviour. It may be used individually and as a school-based screening measure for the identification of bullies and bully-victims.
- Bully-Victimization Distress Scale (BVDS) The BVDS is a measure of students’ psychological response to bullying and determines the internalising and externalising nature of this distress.
- School Violence Anxiety Scale (SVAS) The SVAS evaluates anxiety about the school as a safe environment, including anxiety specific to physical harm at school, harassment at school, and the potential for violence occurring at school.
