Sage Podcast
By Sameer Hinduja

Dr. Hinduja participates in a joint podcast organized by Sage Publications with fellow social scientists Robert Agnew, Carter Hay, and Paul Mazerolle to chat about the relationship between the sociological concept of strain, traditional bullying, and cyberbullying.  It's worth a listen if you're interested in learning more about empirical research in this area.  Near the end of the podcast, Dr. Hinduja also briefly discusses his forthcoming co-authored (with Dr. Patchin) article to be published in Youth and Society.  That piece found that middle schoolers who reported experiencing strain were significantly more likely to have engaged in bullying and cyberbullying, that bullying seemed to be related to feelings of negative emotions, and that anger and frustration did not appear to mediate the relationship between strain and either traditional bullying or cyberbullying (which is contrary to General Strain Theory).

AudioEd - What School Administrators Can Do About Cyberbullying
By Sameer Hinduja

Dr. Hinduja discusses how public districts can informally and formally respond to online bullying incidents, even if they originated by students outside of school. He covers how some semblance of legal precedent has been built over the last few decades related to student speech and free expression, and applies those precepts to new technology misuse cases. Finally, he suggests prevention and intervention strategies that should deter the behavior in the future and send a clear message that interpersonal harassment among youth will not be tolerated by school personnel.

What They're Saying...
"Thank you for sharing your expertise and your research on Cyberbullying with the District Safety and Security Directors at the March Statewide Meeting. Your presentation was most relevant to the audience of both law enforcement officers and educators. As a matter of fact, it served as a catalyst to begin the necessary dialogue needed between all agencies so that we can address the most potentially dangerous behaviors that occur all too often in our schools and communities. You communicated most eloquently and so effectively, the importance of being skillful with technology, so that we can responsibly understand and monitor the online environments of our youth. We hope that you will accept our invitation to attend future meetings. Our future forums will be designed so that we will share the unique best practices and lessons learned that relate to the Cyberviolence incidents we experience in our respected roles." Kim Mazauskas, Bullying Prevention/Intervention Coordinator, School District of Palm Beach County, Florida
