Overview

Bullying affects millions of children throughout the world each year. With advances in technology, cyber bullying has become more prevalent through the use of e-mail, instant messages, chat rooms, and other digital messaging systems. It brings with it unique challenges for parents and educators.

Cyber Bullying provides the most current and essential information on the nature and prevalence of this epidemic. Examining the latest research and methods for studying this issue, the authors have utilized vital studies involving over 3500 middle-school students, online research projects on cyber bullying on blogs, and data from focus groups of victims and perpetrators and their parents.

This accessibly-written text provides educators, parents, psychologists, and policy-makers with critical prevention techniques and strategies for effectively addressing electronic bullying.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
?It provides an excellent overview of bullying research in general, paying proper attention to research from around the world, and a good overview of the cyberbullying research, much of which the authors have been directly involved in conducting.? (Research Papers in Education, August 2009)

?Cyber Bullying provides the most current and essential information on the nature and prevalence of this epidemic, providing educators, parents, psychologists and policy-makers with critical prevention techniques and strategies for effectively addressing electronic bullying.? (The Parent Report, March 2009)

?Champions and critics of the [cyberbullying] laws agree that preventive education is a more powerful deterrent to cyberbullying than discipline. That notion is supported by Patricia Agatston, co-author of Cyber Bullying: Bullying in the Digital Age and a counselor at Cobb County School District's Prevention-Intervention Center in Georgia.? (Washington Post, January 2009)

?A must-read for anyone who has access to technology, and it is particularly relevant for any parent and educator who works with youth. Cyber Bullying provides eye-opening and helpful suggestions for helping parents and educators monitor and track students' use of technology. Provides a very useful roadmap for educators and parents about this phenomenon.? (PsycCritiques)

"The school bully isn't necessarily that oversized, physically intimidating kid anymore. Humiliation by words has become just as popular--if not more so--as children's social lives have migrated online...The authors of Cyber Bullying: Bullying in the Digital Age, which comes out November 14, interviewed approximately 150 middle and high school students during the spring and fall of 2006. Aside from their own first-hand research, the book includes a plethora of statistics from leading academic researchers covering cyberbullying and real-life bullying around the world." (CNET Networks)

"A very helpful guide to the cyber world for parents, teachers, school counselors and parent educators." (NASAP Family Newsletter)

?Much needed addition ? .Mandatory reading for parents of adolescents and school personnel, administrators and teachers ? .Now is the time to read this book.? (Metapsychology)

?A useful introduction to the growing problem of electronic harassment among children. The chapters providing advice to parents and educators are quite helpful.? (American Journal of Psychology)
