Specialized in adolescent peer relationships and bullying
My name is Lydia Laninga-Wijnen. I am a researcher and university teacher, specialized in adolescent peer relationships and bullying. My mission is to identify how peers can help adolescents in adverse circumstances, for instance, when they are being bullied. I recently received a grant (Rubicon, NWO) to start up my own research line, in which I will examine whether being defended either helps or hurts victims of bullying.
