About this book

Introduction

Drawing on research evidence and media coverage, this book explores a number of key debates surrounding cyberbullying. The increasing digitization of society affords many benefits; however, some of these benefits are offset by more adverse consequences. Cyberbullying represents one of the adverse consequences of technology use, which has become a topic of increasing societal concern. Betts adopts a critical stance to exploring issues around the definition of cyberbullying, the unique nature of cyberbullying compared to other forms of bullying, the variation in the reported prevalence rates of cyberbullying, the consequences of involvement in cyberbullying, and the steps that can be taken to tackle cyberbullying.
