What They're Saying...
"While at the National Girl Bullying Conference I attended the "Cyberbullying Among Adolescent Girls" general session. Dr. Hinduja's was very humorous, laid-back but yet very informative. I appreciated his speaking approach because it kept me alert and I was not bored with statistics. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work. It instantly inspired me to learn as much as I can on the topic, which is why, I immediately changed my schedule to be sure I attended his "Safe Social Networking and Adolescent Girls: Best and Worst Practices" session. Although I was aware of cyberbullying I was taken aback by the statistics of the common practice it has become, age of victims and aggressors, but most of all the intensity of the abuse. I appreciate the generosity of allowing us to access his free resources; it is a great help in implementing education and change amongst our youth. I walked out of the sessions with a new way of looking at combating the problem: technology is not the enemy but has to be our ally. I look forward to going back and building our blogs and chat rooms for our groups!" Elvia Pace, Mi Carrera Coordinator, YWCA San Antonio
