cyberbullying research center   "A group of boys who i meet through my hall of residence have always had a thing against me, i appear to be outgoing, happy, confident and loud. I stand up for myself. What they didn't know is that I suffered from a mild depression from issues in my past. After constantly saying mean stuff and making mean gestures to me whenever they saw me or i came up in conversation they decided to make a Facebook group for a 'leaving party' for me, even though everybody new they did not like me. i am going on a unit exchange and they said this was for me and sarcastically talked about how sad they will be and how will they cope without me. Everybody knew it was a joke, they publicly humiliated me and expressed their hate for me. I was very very distressed and my confidence was and still is lowered. I was diagnosed with severe depression and have had suicidal thoughts which i am working on to get better. It has been a month and not one of them has apologized, my mother and father are furious and want me to go to the proctor of my university about it or the police but I am unsure if they could do anything about it. I thought when I got to university this would stop but it has gotten worse and I do not know what action I should take against them but I am scared that they will do it to someone weaker to me and this could be very, very bad." (19 year-old boy from NZ)

What They're Saying...
"I enjoyed your cyberbullying workshop in North Carolina today. It was very well organized, clear, and reflected your obviously extensive knowledge of the subject. You also responded to questions very sensitively, and I was particularly impressed with how respectfully you interacted with [a sixteen-year-old in the audience]. As I told you at the end, of the hundreds of professional presentations I've heard in my 37 year career, yours was clearly in the top 5%. I've also ordered your book and look forward to learning more about this important subject." C. Drew Edwards, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Child Psychologist and Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychology, Wake Forest University
