cyberbullying research center   "You people that are being bullied need to stop listening to other people i truly think it's not rite and the bullies need to stop... Because just in case they haven't notice there has been a major increase of teens suiciding them self's... It breaks my heart when i here that teens or even adults are suiciding them self's because, they are getting made fun of or are getting picked on whatever the reason it breaks my heart when i here that people have killed themselves because of it. Also because of the bulling people have gone to the extreme they have gone and killed people at their school like for example the columbine high school massacre... that occurred in 1998 i believe it was these 2 students that got picked on and they took matters the wrong way. Well you guys can research it if you guys are interested i recommend you guys do especially those bullies out there to see what that can cause people to do. But i believe that these two boys were crying out for help but no one would listen. Well there's much more i have to say but don't want to write a whole page on here but if you guys feel the need to talk to someone here's my email address we all have things we need to let go. It can be about anything problems with family anything I'm a person that is here to listen and help you" (16 year-old girl from Corcoran, CA)

What is cyberbullying?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Our definition of cyberbullying, consisting of four major components - "willful," "repeated," "harm," and "electronic devices."


Cyberbullying explained in detail
with Dr. Justin Patchin

A comprehensive summary of cyberbullying to quickly get you up to speed with the problem as it affects today's adolescents.


Does it affect children in the real world?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Cyberbullying cannot simply be relegated to an online issue - it has significant implications for youth offline - emotionally, psychologically, and behaviorally.


Why is it important to address?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Cyberbullying is important to address because of the specific ways it affects a teenager's developmental health and trajectory.


How can adults help?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Adults can play a meaningful proactive and reactive role when cyberbullying occurs to the youth they care for.


Where is cyberbullying happening?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Online harassment takes place in a variety of online environments and venues, and through a variety of technological devices.


How is the online venue unique?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Certain characteristics of the Internet and other wired and wireless communication devices contribute to and facilitate harmful interactions among youth online.


What are some of the consequences?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Being victimized by a cyberbully takes a meaningful toll on youth, and in a way that should not be trivialized or disregarded.


How can educators help?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

School professionals can play a significant role in the way youth learn how to use technology in a responsible manner, the way they safeguard themselves from online harassment, and in the way preventive measures can be implemented to reduce vulnerability to victimization.


What are some warning signs?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Certain red flags often arise when a youth is a cyberbully victim or offender, and it is best to be on the lookout for these as they may warrant your specific attention.


How can friends or witnesses help?
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Bystanders often are the only voice that a victim may have in seeking or obtaining help, and therefore can play a tremendous part in helping reduce cyberbullying victimization.


Gender demographics
with Dr. Sameer Hinduja

Traditional bullying is sometimes considered a male-dominated affair; research is showing that boys and girls participate quite similarly in cyberbullying - on the giving and on the receiving end.
