Understanding and Responding to Adolescent Girls' Online Cruelty
Sokal, Laura
Canadian Journal of Counselling and Psychotherapy, v46 n2 p107-121 2012
Many school counsellors have identified "cyber-bullying" among adolescent girls as a growing concern. In order to respond to this issue, this article begins with a new model of cyber-communications from the unique perspective of adolescent girls. Next, it explores the limitations of responding to this model, based on current understandings of cyber-bullying. Finally, based on the current literature, recommendations are made to school counsellors regarding the essential components of programming that show promise in addressing online cruelty among this group.
