Bullying, School Violence, and Climate in Evolving Contexts

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the emerging issues surrounding cyberbullying. It discusses the role of the school regarding cyberbullying victimization (even when it does not take place on school grounds) and the shift toward schools taking more responsibility over these behaviors. The chapter examines critically multiple definitions of cyberbullying and their implications for research and policy. It identifies specific types and manifestations of cyberbullying (e.g., social and sexual victimization). The chapter reviews some of the findings on prevalence, correlates, and consequences of cyberbullying and discusses interventions, policies, and legal frameworks that address these issues. The chapter presents a case study of a large national sample of Israeli students that examines the prevalence of cyberbullying, traditional bullying, and their interrelationships in the context of school climate, both on the student and the school level.

Keywords:   cyberbullying, traditional bullying, school climate, social victimization, Israel
