Cyber Bullying

31 Free Images by Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

In the United States, October is National Bullying Prevention Month. It is during this time of the year that America focuses on bullying and cyber bullying prevention. Bullying and cyber bullying are serious social problems that can cause serious physical and psychological harm to children and their loved ones. As of 2016, bullying and cyberbullying are oddly defined as pediatric problems involving minors.

Adult bullying, cyber harassment, internet trolling and workplace bullying are all synonymous terms used when adults are involved as either aggressor or target. Although this writer views bullying and cyberbullying applying to all ages, they will be presented as a pediatric phenomenon until general consensus accepts them as being non-age related.

Cyber Bullying Defined

Cyber bullying is a term describing recurrent and sustained verbal and/or physical attacks by one or more children towards another child using Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Similar to classic bullying, cyberbullying is harmful, repeated and hostile behavior intended to deprecate another child for reasons other than self-defense.

Cyberbullying involves threatening or disparaging communications delivered through ICT that can occur anonymously, publicly or by using felonious identities. Whereas classic bullying typically involves face-to-face interactions and non-digital forms of communication, cyber bullying consists of data exchanged via ICT and may never involve face-to-face meetings.

Cyber bullying is an abuse centered interpersonal dynamic that includes aggressors, targets and bystanders. The main developmental issues fueling cyberbullying are peer acceptance, recognition and occasionally retribution. Not all cyber bullying is fueled by dark developmental needs or perceptual distortions. There are instances when children cyberbully other children due to their ignorance or belief that they are joking.

“Not to say that pre-Information Age bullied children were not traumatized, but Information Age cyberbullied children are relentlessly tormented 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.” Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2014)
