3.7.7 Difference in bullying and victimization between academically gifted and normal group: Multi-group analysis of cross-sectional latent means and longitudinal stability

This presentation will examine if there is any difference in bullying and victimisation between the academically gifted and normal groups. For cross-sectional differences, multi-group analysis of latent means was used. For longitudinal differences, multi-group auto-regression models were used. With Korean secondary students (gifted=164, normal=3,484) for 3 waves (Grades 7-9), we found no differences except for the longitudinal stability of victimisation. The victimisation of gifted at 7th grade were found to be more crucial in predicting subsequent victimisations, especially at 9th grade, than the normal group. This result implies the need for early intervention to prevent chronic victimisation of the gifted.
