One of the most pernicious challenges associated with social media is the presence of cyber bullying. Recent estimates suggest over a third of American teens have experienced cyber bullying, which has been associated with elevated rates of social anxiety, depression, and suicide. Since most of the bullying occurs out of sight, it can be difficult to identify if a child is being bullied.

Through this introductory to immediate-level interactive webinar lecture, participants will learn to assess cyber bullying in youth as well as practical resources and skills to address cyber bullying with their clients and their parents effectively. Cyber bullying and electronic media create unique circumstances when considering the frequency, impact, and duration of bullying compared to more traditional means, however the methods for assessment and intervention have many parallels to existing treatment. You’ll learn the latest research findings relating to cyber bullying, and how to differentiate cyber bullying from other types of online behavior as well as forms of in-person bullying.

CLINICAL OBJECTIVES: By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Compare the key similarities and differences between cyber and in-person forms of bullying in terms of negative behaviors, repeated over time, with a power imbalance.
  • Describe key findings from research on cyber victimization, including incidence and associated mental health sequelae.
  • Contrast approaches used for traditional bullying assessment and intervention with methods for assessing and treating cyber bullying.
  • Develop a plan for how to incorporate cyber bullying assessment and intervention into relevant clinical cases.
