Abstract

The present study investigated the school-aged bullying history among university students in Sarawak and its relationship with depressive, PTSD symptoms and resilience. Cross-sectional design was adopted and 499 university students (Mage = 19.52, SD = 1.58) participated in this study with 72.1% (n = 360) were females and 27.9% (n = 139) males. Results indicated high prevalence of bullying history, 38.1% (n = 190); 21.4% (n = 107) identified as victims, 9.4% (n = 47) bullies (perpetrators) and 7.2% (n = 36) bully-victims (both being perpetrators and victims). Result shows no significant association between bullying history and type of schools attended. Participants with bullying history who previously attended boarding schools scored significantly higher in depressive and PTSD symptoms as compared to those who previously attended non-boarding schools. Resilience and its relationship with depressive and PTSD symptoms revealed no significant relationship among university students with the history of school-aged bullying. Based on the present finding, school-aged bullying history is one of the potentially traumatic events which frequently happened both in the boarding and non-boarding schools. The present finding contributed to the knowledge on the risk of resided in the hostel dorm with the history of school-aged bullying leads to the development of depressive and PTSD symptoms. Resilience does not play significant factor in minimizing the depressive and PTSD symptoms among students with bullying history, instead it might play important role in protecting students from dropping out of school or perform academic poorly. Prevention and intervention plans are needed to prevent school bullying from getting worse. Keywords: School-aged bullying, depressive symptoms, PTSD symptoms
