Just as the previous generation was raised in front of televisions, adolescents at the turn of the 21st century are being raised in an internet-enabled world where blogs, social networking, and instant messaging are competing with face-to-face and telephone communication as the dominant means through which personal interaction takes place. Unfortunately, a small but growing proportion of our youth are being exposed online to interpersonal violence, aggression, and harassment via cyberbullying. The mission of this book is to explore the many critical issues surrounding this new phenomenon. The book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date look at the major issues that teachers, school administrators, counsellors, social workers, and parents need to be aware of with respect to cyberbullying identification, prevention, and response. This book is appropriate for teachers, administrators, parents and others seeking research-based guidance on how to deal with the rising tide of cyberbullying issues. It is also appropriate for a variety of college level courses dealing with school violence and educational administration. Contents of this book include: (1) A "Living Internet": Some Context for the Cyberbullying Discussion (Anne Collier); (2) Cyberbullying: An Update and Synthesis of the Research (Justin W. Patchin and Sameer Hinduja); (3) Cyberbullying and the Law (Nancy Willard); (4) Youth Views on Cyberbullying (Patricia Agatston, Robin Kowalski, and Susan Limber); (5) Cyberbullying: How School Counselors Can Help (Russell Sabella); (6) Empowering Bystanders (Stan Davis and Charisse Nixon); (7) You Mean We Gotta Teach That, Too? (Mike Donlin); (8) A "Toolbox" of Cyberbullying Prevention Initiatives and Activities (Jenny Walker); (9) Responding to Cyberbullying: Advice for Educators and Parents (Elizabeth K. Englander); and (10) School Law Enforcement and Cyberbullying (Sameer Hinduja and Justin W. Patchin).
