Examining the Pathways Between Bully Victimization, Depression, Academic Achievement, and Problematic Drinking in Adolescence

In Hong et al.’s (2014) conceptual framework, the author’s proposed important mechanisms and paths that may contribute to the association between bully victimization and substance use among adolescents. Specifically, we extend this framework and prior research by examining longitudinal within-person bidirectional relationships between bully victimization, depression, academic achievement, and problematic alcohol use from three theoretical frameworks - interpersonal risk model, symptom driven model, and a transactional model.
