Previous research established that certain personality traits are associated with being a bully and with being a victim. However, attempts to incorporate these findings into a theoretical explanation of bullying are lacking. It is important to develop and test theoretical explanations of bullying so that wise decisions may be made on how to ameliorate bullying. Concepts derived from reintegrative shaming theory were used to explore why some university students bully, why some students are repeatedly targeted by bullies (i.e. victims), and why some students are not involved in bullying. In this study, 527 university students were surveyed about their involvement in six different forms of bullying and six different forms of victimization within the past couple of months. Also measured were various personality traits and parenting styles theorized to be associated with involvement in bullying. Statistical analyses revealed that the variables of being a bully during one's childhood, impulsivity, shame displacement, being male, parental stigmatization, positive parent-child affect, and age were significantly associated with being a university student who was a bully in the past couple of months. Being a university student who was a victim in the past couple of months was statistically associated with the variables of shame internalization, being exposed to parental stigmatization, being a childhood victim, age, shame displacement, and being a bully during one's childhood. Being a bully and a victim was statistically associated with the variables of age, being a bully during one's childhood, shame internalization, parental stigmatization, being male, empathy, shame acknowledgement, impulsivity, and being a childhood victim.

Cyberbullying is one of the darker and more troubling aspects to the growing accessibility of new media technologies. Children in developed countries engage with cyberspace at younger and younger ages, and the use of the internet as a means to bully and harass has been greeted with alarm by educationalists, parents, the media, and governments. This important new book is the result of a four-year international collaboration, funded by the EU, to better understand how we can cope and confront cyberbullying, and how new media technologies can be used to actually support the victims of such abuse. The articles initially define the historical and theoretical context to cyberbullying, before examining key issues involved in managing this pervasive phenomenon. Coverage includes: The definition and measurement of cyberbullying. The legal challenges in tackling cyberbullying across a number of international contexts. The role of mobile phone companies and Internet service providers in monitoring and prevention How the media frame and present the issue, and how that influences our understanding. How victims can cope with the effects of cyberbullying, and the guidelines and advice provided in different countries. How cyber-bullying can continue from school into further education, and the strategies that can be used to prevent it. The ways in which accessing 'youth voice', or maximising the contribution of young people themselves to the research process, can enhance our understanding The book concludes with practical guidance to help confront the trauma that cyberbullying can cause. It will be a valuable resource for researchers, students, policy makers and administrators with an interest in how children and young people are rendered vulnerable to bullying and harassment through a variety of online channels.

Bullying amongst young people is a serious and pervasive problem, and recent rapid advances in electronic communication technologies have provided even more tools for bullies to exploit. School Bullying and Mental Health collates current research evidence and theoretical perspectives about school bullying in one comprehensive volume, identifying the nature and extent of bullying and cyberbullying at school, as well as its impact on children and young people’s emotional health and well-being. There are many negative consequences of bullying, and children and young people who have been victimised often suffer long-term psychological problems, such as increased levels of anxiety, depressive symptoms, social isolation, loneliness and suicidal ideation. Perpetrators of bullying also have a heightened risk of experiencing problems such as anxiety and depression, as well as eating disorders and antisocial behaviour. Founded on rigorous academic research, this important book tackles the negative consequences of bullying, and bullying culture itself, by examining the social and cultural contexts that perpetuate such behaviour from childhood through adolescence and potentially into adulthood. Containing contributions from an international team of authors, this book explores current interventions to prevent and reduce school bullying and to alleviate its negative effects on the mental health of children and young people. In-depth discussion of the profound implications of this research for researchers, practitioners and policymakers makes this book essential reading for those interested in bullying culture and the mental health and well-being of children and adolescents.

The purpose of this research is to examine whether cyberbullying experiences occur among college-age students; if lesbian, gay, and bi-sexual (LGB) individuals experience cyberbullying more than heterosexual individuals; and if bullied, are college students likely to report such cyberbullying to someone in authority. To examine cyberbullying, a convenience sample of 129 college students at a mid-southern university, recruited through emails, presentations, and flyers to respond to a survey. The data from this research examined routine activities theory to examine cyberbullying among college students. The strongest correlations to experiencing cyberbullying were suitability and availability.

The current study examined the prevalence of cyberbullying among college students as well as the relationship between types of attacks and the psychological consequences experienced by the victim. Support was found for hypothesis 1; among college students who report experiencing cyberbullying, flaming was the most frequently reported type of attack. Partial support was found for hypothesis 2. Specifically, those who reported cyber stalking reported higher rates of anxiety compared to those who did not report experiencing cyber stalking. Additionally, it was found that those who reported experiencing flaming reported higher rates of depression when compared to those who did not; however, those who experienced flaming reported higher rates of anxiety than they did depression. The highest means for the various psychological correlates were for those who experienced cyber stalking (negative impact on self- esteem M = 2.6, anxious M = 2.5).

The Age Between presents a rational and comprehensive approach to the problems that adolescents have in our society. Dr. Derek Miller provides the needed therapeutic and social skills to help these individuals move into maturity. Miller explains that it is not enough to understand the child-rearing and maturational processes that affect the adolescent; it is equally important to recognize and appreciate the nature and structure of social organizations in which they function, particularly the school environment, including teacher-student and peer relationships.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Multimedia, Internet, New Technologies, grade: A, The University of Liverpool, course: Information Management, language: English, abstract: Social network sites have millions of users worldwide with the sites integrated into the daily practices of the users with increasing numbers recorded among university students. Examples of popular social network sites used commonly by university students include Facebook, Bebo, MySpace, Cyworld and many others. The largest of the sites among university students being Facebook created in 2004 by Zuckerberg with its rate of usage at 90% (Stutzman, 2006). In addition, Facebook has stimulated a platform for a lot researches on its various aspects for instance in academics (Hewitt & Forte, 2006). Furthermore the growth of social network sites on schools can be attributed to the growth The intense usage of social network sites within academic institutions has resulted into social capital formation and on the other hand resulted to new platforms of effective communication. In addition, the social network sites are also associated with social capital measures for instance bonding and bridging of social capital. Furthermore, self esteem moderates the relationship between social capital and social network sites. Individuals who have low self esteem tend to gain confidence from using social network sites as compared with their counterparts who have high self-esteem. This aspect acts as a psychological boost to individuals specifically students who are introverts and can act as an academic boost for them. Studies conducted earlier on social network sites had data being collected at one-point-in-time thus making it difficult to determine a time order in relationships among users of the social network sites, social capital and self esteem. The growth of social network sites was not phenomenal and popular and thus the underlying reasons which attracted different segments could not be identified. The reports indicated that studies on impacts of SNSs among heavy users like university students need to be conducted since friendship maintenance using social network sites play a significant role in individual psychological development of students. The age group 18 to 25 represents the period between adulthood and adolescence according to Arnett (2000). This stage, as argued by Arnett, is vital to an individual adulthood development since during this period when a person develops social skills like for career orientation, relationship maintenance and self dependency.

Cyberbullying is a problem that is being increasingly investigated by researchers, however, much of the cyberbullying research literature to date has focused on children and youth. Cyberbullying at University in International Contexts fills the gap in the research literature by examining the nature, extent, impacts, proposed solutions, and policy and practice considerations of bullying in the cyber-world at post-secondary institutions, where reports of serious cyberbullying incidents have become more prevalent. This book brings together cutting-edge research from around the world to examine the issue of cyberbullying through a multi-disciplinary lens, offering an array of approaches, interpretations, and solutions. It is not solely focused on cyberbullying by and against students, but also includes cyberbullying by and against faculty members, and permutations involving both students and faculty, as well as institutional staff, presenting perspectives from students, practitioners and senior university policy makers. It draws on research from education, criminology, psychology, sociology, communications, law, health sciences, social work, humanities, labour studies and is valuable reading for graduate students in these fields. It is also essential reading for policymakers, practitioners and University administrators who recognize their responsibility to provide a healthy workplace for their staff, as well as a safe and respectful environment for their students.

Being bullied has been recognized as a problem within the U.S. school systems. Individuals who have been bullied physically, verbally, relationally, or electronically typically suffer from mental health problems as a result. As it has been shown that males are more at risk for being bullied, it is important to understand what variables can predict males being bullied in order to design appropriate preventions and interventions to curb bullying in the schools. Four forms of school bullying behaviors among U.S. adolescent males and their association with type of bullying, school environment, and school performance and engagement variables were examined. Data were examined from the National Crime Victimization Survey School Crime Supplement. A sample of 1,636 males ages 14 to 18 was used from the survey. A series of logistic regression analyses were performed for each type of bullying (physical, verbal, relational, and cyber) and school environment (presence of gangs, guns, graffiti, drugs, and number of school safety measures in place) and school performance and engagement predictors (grades, extracurricular activity engagement, truancy, and number of fights). Linear regression analyses were also used to look at all the predictor variables and the frequency of each type of bullying. Results: The R2 values for the logistic regression analyses were quite small. However, trends could be observed from the odds ratios showing that fighting, drug availability, and graffiti were predictive of all four forms of bullying. The linear regression analyses also produced small R2 values. Effect plots were created to identify which significant variables had a greater effect on the frequency of being bullied. Conclusion: Schools should focus on removing graffiti and drugs from the schools. Prevention work should be used to help students find alternative ways to deal with problems other than resorting to fighting. Problems with reliability and validity of the survey are also discussed.
