Cyber Bullying A Prevention Curriculum For Grades

Cyber Bullying is defined as the willful and repeated act of harming others electronically (through email, instant messaging, Web sites, chat rooms, social networking sites, cell phones and other electronic means). It is a relatively new issue, but has clear consequences that need to be addressed. This is why Hazelden has published Cyber Bullying: A Prevention Curriculum for Grades 6-12. The consequences of cyber bullying are far-reaching, causing some victims to experience low self-esteem, poor academic achievement, difficulty making friends, loneliness, depression, and suicidal thoughts and tendencies. Some reports of suicide following incidents of cyber bullying have been in the news. Around one-third of all teens using the internet have been bullied, and have found that bullying in any form is tied to a host of other behavior problems, including substance abuse. Education and prevention are keys to halting cyber bullying. The Hazelden cyber bullying curriculum is authored by nationally renowned experts in the field of bullying prevention. Author: Susan P.
