cyberbullying research center   "If you honestly feel that bad about yourself that you feel the need to harass other people...then you need to point blank get a life. If you're religious, then trust in God to give you some self-esteem. If you're not good luck with that. The bottom line is that saying mean things to make yourself good is malicious and idiotic. It only makes you look like a fool and be branded as an oppressor. So if you're one of them and have the AUDACITY to try and justify yourself. Save it for someone who cares because i know for a FACT none of the people here do. It may be wrong to judge but those who commit this crime can't possibly have ANY character whatsoever." (17 year-old boy from USA)

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.

What They're Saying...
"Your presentation was the most informative presentation I've heard on the behaviors today's students are subjected to. Your objective, calm and thorough summary of the pervasive reach of cyberbullying in the lives of our children was instructive.
