  • Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate and understand the coping strategies which victims of bullying instances often use and perceive to be effective and to examine whether there were significant differences among the strategies that are perceived to be effective, frequently used strategies, and their background variables (gender and education). A total of 593 valid questionnaires were collected from students from elementary, junior high and senior high schools. This study adopted the Kristensen and Smith’s(2003)Self-Report Coping Measure (SRCM) measures as the instrument to investigate coping strategies. Rasch model and MANOVA were used as the methods of analysis. The results of this study showed that the strategies of “Seeking Social Support” and “Self-Reliance/Problem Solving” were most often used and perceived as more effective. On the contrary, the coping strategies of “Internalizing” and “Externalizing” were perceived as less effective and were rarely used. In addition, female students had a significantly higher frequency to utilize “Internalization” than male students. “Externalizing” was perceived to be more effective among male students. High school students had a significantly higher frequency in using “Problem-solving”, “Internalization” and “Externalization”. However, there were no significant differences in the perceived effectiveness of the five strategies in different levels of education. Based on the results of this study, the researcher hopes schools can enhance students’ knowledge on coping strategies in bullying instances to reduce and prevent bullying.
