Abstract/Summary

The aim of the present study was to examine the moderating role of resilience on the effects of college bullying (relational-verbal bullying, cyberbullying, physical bullying, culture-based bullying) to college adjustment. The sample consisted of 257 college freshmen students from two universities in Pampanga. Self-report data were used to measure their bullying victimization experiences in college, resilience, and college adjustment. The study tested four models of moderation for analyzing the role of resilience on the effect each of the four forms of bullying on college adjustment. Resilience significantly predicted college adjustment whereas neither of the four forms of bullying predicted college adjustment. Furthermore, resilience was found to significantly moderate the relationships of college adjustment with physical bullying and cyberbullying but not with relational-verbal and culture-related bullying. These results underscore the significance of generating resilience-based interventions that might help students adjust better despite the bullying victimization.
