Abstract

Peer victimization is usually addressed with hazardous short and long term effects. Social surroundings and cyber technology act as a fertile ground for perpetrators to target victims. Fragile and lonely people are often targeted by aggressors or bullies who may make them feel like a ‘loser’. This results in their withdrawal from society and can result in suicidal or revenge thoughts. In this paper, we present a complex multi-layered adaptive mental network model based on cognitive and psychological literature. The network model is simulated for three type of victims: a) passive, b) assertive and c) ambivert using case studies. It can be used as a basis in classification and to provide support of the victims.
