Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Many children and adolescents have embraced digital technologies as part of their routine, daily activities. Digital technologies allow children and adolescents many opportunities, such as access to an array of information and the ability to communicate with just about anyone around the world. Despite these benefits, an online menace lurks in cyberspace: Cyberbullying. The purpose of this chapter is to describe research on cyberbullying from around the world to examine the nature, extent, causes, and consequences related to children's and adolescents' involvement in these behaviors. The studies reviewed in this chapter include cross-sectional, longitudinal, cross-sequential, qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods research designs. These studies are also drawn from various disciplines, including psychology, sociology, media and communication studies, social work, computer science, and education. Practice implications and recommendations for future research, are also made. The chapter concludes with a call for society to consider cyberbullying a global issue, warranting everyone's attention.
