    LAURA CROTHERS, PhD, and Jered B. Kolbert have been conducting two new research projects regarding bullying. The first is an examination of the cognitive correlates of relational and social aggression. In a previous study, Crothers, Kolbert, Kanyongo, Field, and Schmitt (2014) used a convenience sample of college students to ascertain the relation between deep and elaborative processing and relational and social aggression. In summary, higher levels of social and relational aggression were related to higher levels of deep and elaborative processing. Because there are no published studies that investigate the relationship between elements of cognition that can be measured through an individually-administered standardized assessment of intelligence and the use of relational and social aggression, Crothers and Kolbert are currently investigating the linkages between these constructs in a sample of urban, late adolescent college students. The second research study is a measurement of the effects of bullying perpetrated against the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) adolescent student population in southwestern Pennsylvania. While Pennsylvania public schools are legally required to have anti-bullying policies, the purpose of this investigation is to attempt to gauge the perceived effectiveness of these policies by surveying LGBTQ youth, their parents, and middle school and high school teachers in southwestern Pennsylvania.
