Bullying in the Digital Era: The Ugly Face of Facebook

Friday, February 25, 2022. 12:30pm - 2:00pm

Social media is an ever-present part of our daily lives, and today’s youth have grown up entirely in a digital world. This creates challenges for parents who have grown up with digital technologies, but for whom social media was not a defining part of their adolescent experience. 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.

Through this introductory to immediate-level interactive webinar lecture, participants will learn to differentiate cyber bullying from other types of online behavior as well as forms of in-person bullying. 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.  Participants will leave this workshop with the ability to assess cyber bullying in youth as well as practical resources and skills to address cyber bullying with their clients and their parents effectively.

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.

PARENTS: If you are concerned that your child is involved in some type of cyber bullying, either as the recipient or as a perpetrator, this webinar may be for you. You will gain an understanding of what cyber bullying looks like, and learn parenting strategies and skills to help your child if they are being victimized.
