Presented by Tonja Krautter, LCSW, LCP
This presentation is designed as an introduction to and an exploration of cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is a form of bullying that uses various forms of technology to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group that is intended to harm others. This phenomenon is relatively new, but is rapidly growing in frequency and complexity with the constant advancements in technology and accessibility to devices. Therefore, cyber bullying is currently being explored by researchers and educators alike to determine causes, factors, prevention, and intervention. In addition, the legal system is faced with prosecuting, defending, and creating new laws to protect victims and enforce proper punishments to perpetrators.
At the end of this presentation you will be able to:
- List 3 causes for the rise of cyber bullying
- Explain 3 differences between traditional bullying and cyber bullying
- Describe characteristics of victims and perpetrators of cyber bullying
- Describe 3 intervention and prevention tactics for cyber bullying
