This study presents a critical validation contribution of the Multidimensional Peer-Victimization Scale (MPVS) for the Italian socio-cultural context. The original version of MPVS was elaborated by Mynard and Joseph (2000). The aim of the scale is to assess four factors related to peer-victimization: physical victimization, verbal victimization, social manipulation and attacks on property. Respondents were 368 children (49.7% female, 50.3% male) aged 9 to 12 years (M = 11.2; SD = 0.78), attending the last two years of the primary school or the first two years in the secondary school of North Eastern Italy. A Confirmatory Factor Analysis was conducted, confirming the original four-factor structure.
