ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine multiple mediation effects of gender role conflict, shame, and depression among middle school boys on the relationship between victimization from bullying and reactive aggression. Self-reported data of 462 middle school boys were analyzed. The results of structural equation modeling(SEM) indicated that a greater frequency of victimization from bullying was associated with increased gender role conflict among males, which contributed to reactive aggression. In addition, the double mediation effects of male gender role conflict and depression were significant for victimization from bullying and reactive aggression. Shame and depression, respectively, also served as mediators between victimization and reactive aggression. Finally, multiple mediating effects of male gender role conflicts, shame, and depression were also demonstrated. Based on these findings, implications and suggestions for intervention strategies for victimized male students are discussed.
