Why is it that bullies bully? And what makes bystanders intervene? This dissertation sheds light on the emotional and social processes related to bullying, defending, and victimization in primary schools. The victims' psychosocial well-being and the effectiveness of the Support Group Approach in altering the victim’s situation are investigated using innovative measures and research designs. Moreover, this dissertation gives insight into the mechanisms underlying bullying and defending behavior, while specifically focusing on the role of perceived popularity in the classroom.
