About the Center:
The Cyberbullying Research Center is dedicated to providing up-to-date information about the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of cyberbullying among adolescents. Cyberbullying can be defined as “willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices.” Run by two leaning experts in the field, I have the utmost respect for the work of Drs. Patchin and Hinduja.
Here are links to their new resources:
- A Summary of State Bullying and Cyberbullying Laws. It is current as of July 1, 2010
- “Ten Ideas for Youth to Educate their Community about Cyberbullying.” This document outlines specific activities that adolescents can do to promote awareness about online bullying and teach others how to deal with it.
- And, they’ve released five new research-based fact sheets, all summarizing recent findings being published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
