Vittimizzazione tra pari e sintomi traumatici nella prima adolescenza/em>This study aimed to investigate if being bullied by peers is a risk factor for traumatic symptoms in early adolescence. Possible moderation effects of coping strategies on the associations between these variables were also explored. Participants were 246 middle-school pupils (aged 11- 15 years). A peer-nomination questionnaire was administered in order to assess victimization and forms of participation in bullying, along with two self-report questionnaires measuring traumatic symptoms and coping strategies, respectively. Peer victimization was found to be associated with dissociative and (marginally) depressive symptoms among males. Again among males some coping strategies were shown to moderate the associations between peer-victimization and anxious traumatic symptoms. Key words: peer-victimization; trauma; early adolescence; gender-differences.
