Cyberbullying and Social Media: Information and Interventions for School Nurses Working with Victims, Students, and Families
Byrne, Elizabeth; Vessey, Judith A.; Pfeifer, Lauren
Journal of School Nursing, v34 n1 p38-50 Feb 2018
Social media has become an increasingly prevalent fixture in youths' lives, with over 90% of teenagers reporting daily usage. These online sites and applications have provided many positive opportunities for youths to connect and share ideas with others; however, social media has also become a major platform for cyberbullying. Victims often experience negative health outcomes directly related to cyberbullying. For this reason, it is critical that third parties, such as school nurses, are well versed in social media and the warning signs of those being victimized by cyberbullying. Therefore, this integrative review examines school nurses' knowledge of cyberbullying and social media and identifies the implications for school nursing practice regarding prevention and intervention processes.
