Pelfrey, William V., Jr.; Weber, Nicole L.
Preventing School Failure, v59 n4 p227-236 2015
Research indicates that cyberbullying is occurring among middle and high school student populations at increasing rates. There is limited research, however, on strategies students use to combat cyberbullying, as well as how schools implement policies, intervention tactics, and prevention strategies. This qualitative study aimed to explore, among a sample of middle and high school students and staff, the strategies used at the individual student and schoolwide levels to prevent and combat cyberbullying behavior.
