Abstract

Aims and method The recent upsurge of cyberbullying is a frequent cause of emotional disturbance in children and young people. The situation is complicated by the fact that these interpersonal safety issues are actually generated by the peer group and in contexts that are difficult for adults to control. This review article examines the effectiveness of common responses to cyberbullying. Results Whatever the value of technological tools for tackling cyberbullying, we cannot avoid the fact that this is an interpersonal problem grounded in a social context. Clinical implications Practitioners should build on existing knowledge about preventing and reducing face to face bullying while taking account of the distinctive nature of cyberbullying. Furthermore, it is essential to take account of the values that young people are learning in society and at school. Keywords: cyberbullying, bullying, children and young people, emotional health, values
