"Dr. Hinduja’s workshop on cyberbullying was one of the highlights of our first-ever Answers Summit. Numerous contributors mentioned to me that they found the presentation insightful and appreciated hearing from one of the foremost experts in the field. If we knew that our contributors would have so many questions for Dr. Hinduja we would have increased the time allotted for his workshop. Not only did Dr. Hinduja educate our community about the issue of cyberbullying but he provided pertinent real-life examples of the practice and offered suggestions for combating the problem. I would recommend him to any online community which would like to stop this destructive behavior."
