cyberbullying research center   "Being bullied makes me feel really bad, and I often get depressed later at home. I would also plot revenge and privately express my 'hatred' towards the bully, but I doubt I would really do anything about it...I don't usually go to adults to 'tattle' on people, even though I know it's not tattling, it's real." (12 year-old girl from CA)

What They're Saying...
"The State of Maryland was fortunate to receive funding from the Anti-Defamation League to host a one-day workshop for educators on the prevention of cyber bullying. The Maryland State Department of Education jointly hosted the training in one of our local school systems with representatives from all school systems in Maryland being invited. Dr. Sameer Hinduja provided an enlightening and engaging keynote address. He is extremely knowledgeable on the topic, engages his audience, and uses humor to deliver his message on this very serious topic. Evaluations from the day rated his presentation highly. I highly recommend him as a presenter. Please do not hesitate to contact me at (410) 767-0311 if you would like more information." Charles J. Buckler, Director, Student Services and Alternative Programs Branch, Maryland State Department of Education
