Description Cyberbullying is a growing concern and a negative consequence associated with children’s and adolescents’ increasing accessibility to the internet and digital technologies. Children and adolescents are accessing the internet and these technologies at younger and younger ages, leaving some of them vulnerable to cyberbullying. As a new phenomenon, cyberbullying might be best understood as a complex process resulting from the interplay among the individual and multiple environments. To this end, this groundbreaking book provides a new framework for understanding cyberbullying perpetration and victimization. Utilizing the social-ecological perspective to describe how personal factors and multiple environments contribute to cyberbullying, the book compiles research on these topics from international researchers in developmental psychology, social psychology, counseling, school psychology, social work, criminology, law, and clinical psychology. Providing critical information about individual and contextual predictors of cyberbullying, the authors provide new practices and policies for addressing these behaviors.
