Cyber bullying: An old problem in a new guise?

Campbell, Marilyn A. (2005) Cyber bullying: An old problem in a new guise? Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 15(1), pp. 68-76.

Abstract

Although technology provides numerous benefits to young people, it also has a ’dark side’, as it can be used for harm, not only by some adults but also by the young people themselves. Email, texting, chat rooms, mobile phones, mobile phone cameras and web sites can and are being used by young people to bully peers. It is now a global problem with many incidents reported in the United States, Canada, Japan, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom, as well as in Australia and New Zealand. This growing problem has as yet not received the attention it deserves and remains virtually absent from the research literature. This article explores definitional issues, the incidence and potential consequences of cyber bullying, as well as discussing possible prevention and intervention strategies.

Impact and interest:
