Burnham, Joy J.; Wright, Vivian H.; Houser, Rick A.
Journal of School Counseling, v9 n15 2011
Cyberbullying is a complex and disturbing 21st century phenomena. School counselors must understand the dynamics and risks of cyberbullying in order to help students, parents, and faculty deal with this difficult issue. We examined the extent to which middle school students understand, participate, and cope with cyberbullying issues in today's technologically equipped homes and schools. Results from the study suggested that approximately 15% of the students had cyberbullied others and almost 30% were victims of cyberbullying. Additionally, 50% of the student body was aware that others had been cyberbullied. We also examined student beliefs, thoughts regarding cyberbullying, and suggestions for adults to consider.
