Cyberbullying Cyberbullying is a huge problem for young people, and has been for many years. A rude comment online can quickly spiral as more people get involved, bombarding the victim with name-calling, rumors, and humiliation. Many kids are scared to get help, fearing loss of Internet access or more embarrassment if they report it. Meanwhile, school performance is impacted as students face the cyberbullies in person every day. Interestingly, it’s not only targets but also cyberbullies who have increased risk of suicide and self-harm. The victim-perpetrator dynamic harms both parties.

This introductory level course is composed of five sections. The first section contains two articles: one by the Cyberbullying Research Center’s Drs. Hinduja and Patchin on identification, prevention, and response and one by Dr. Ofer Zur and Azzia Walker on the role of healthy boundaries and healthy empathy in breaking the victim-perpetrator dynamic. The second section contains one article by the Cyberbullying Research Center on relevant case law. The third section goes into depth with the effect of cyberbullying on targets with two articles: one by Dr. Charisse Nixon and one by Dr. Charles E. Notar, Sharon Padgett, and Jessica Roden.

The fourth section includes six fact sheets from the Cyberbullying Research Center. They focus on what parents, teens, and educators can do to prevent and mitigate the damage from cyberbullying. Its inclusion here is to aid therapists in assisting clients (who may be victims, perpetrators, teachers, administrators, or parents). The fifth and final section includes books, articles, websites, and videos for further exploration.
