Cyberbullying: Sanctions or Sensitivity?
Cowie, Helen; Colliety, Pat
Pastoral Care in Education, v28 n4 p261-268 Dec 2010
This paper explores the phenomenon of cyberbullying. The argument here is that, although there is a case for sanctions, schools also have a critical role to play in preventing and reducing cyberbullying through a process of awareness-raising, the education of the emotions and active participation of children and young people themselves.
