    This will be a short (15 minute) research presentation at an academic conference. Here is the abstract:

    If one pays attention to the news reports of cyberbullying incidents, one is likely to believe that these inappropriate online behaviors are occurring at epidemic levels. Indeed, it seems as though serious cyberbullying incidents occur (or at least are reported) at an almost constant rate. But are the media reports an accurate portrayal of the prevalence of cyberbullying among teens? Furthermore, have incidents really been increasing over the last decade, as one might expect given the increased availability and portability of technology? The current paper examines this question by reviewing three waves of data collected between 2007 and 2014 from one large school district in the southern United States. Results show a small increase in cyberbullying behaviors over that time period. Implications for policy and future research will also be discussed.

Testimonials

"Thank you so much for the time you spent with the students at our school. Several parents and the Principal of our school, Ms. Rogers, told me stories of how you impacted our kids. One 8th grade girl who rarely says anything about her day at school, jumped in the car and said “Mom, we had the most amazing speaker today!” Another 8th grader had the bad idea to talk meanly about a 7th grader that night on Facebook and the 7th grader followed your advice to gather evidence and printed it out and brought it to the principal the next day. Game over! My son who had been arguing with me about me having access to get on his Facebook agreed to let me be his “friend” on that web site. He also went into his account and took himself off several networks and changed his privacy settings to “friends only” as per your advice. Your specific advice andwonderful demeanor touched so many of our children today. We look forward to bringing you back to our school again and again. Your advice is invaluable to children of all ages."

Kirsten Flegel - VP Middle School PSTA, North Broward Preparatory School
