Cyberbullying Campaign
PAGES 2 WORDS 517

Cyberbullying
Beyond Blue is a campaign that is designed to help with depression and anxiety in Australian youth. They tackle a number of issues related to this, including getting help during times of distress. Cyberbullying is one campaign issue that Beyond Blue can work with, because cyberbullying is a major cause of depressions and suicide among teenagers. Addressing this cause of depression at its root can help teenagers to tackle their depression more effectively.

It is important to outline the key roles and responsibilities for the team in order to build the most effective campaign possible. Beyond Blue's organisational structure has three main leaders -- the Chairman Jeff Kennett, the CEO Kate Cornell and the Deputy Chair Tim Marney. There is a Board of Directors that provides leadership to the organisation. From there, Beyond Blue is designed around a geographic structure. There is on overarching Commonwealth of Australia unit, and then departments….

Cyberbullying and Empathy

An inverse relationship between empathy and traditional bullying has been well established empirically (reviewed by Ang and Goh, 2010). Whether the same claim can be made about cyberbullying is unknown, although research data indicates that the anonymity of online bullying may encourage such behavior. Direct bullying, which commonly involves physical aggression, has been shown to be associated with poor affective empathy. In contrast, indirect bullying, such as backstabbing behaviors, is associated with poor cognitive empathy. Affective empathy is the ability to share emotional experiences, whereas cognitive empathy is the ability to understand the emotional experiences of others.

The interaction between gender and empathy has been studied extensively, and boys generally score lower in this respect (reviewed by Ang and Goh, 2010). However, gender seems to have a bigger impact on affective, rather than cognitive empathy. How these forms of empathy and gender interact with cyberbullying prevalence,….

Are existing laws the most effective strategy to address the issue of cyberbullying? Yes or No.

This paper addresses cyberbullying and uses research articles to answer the question and provide background and perspective. One of the references used for this paper is a story from the Connecticut Post (2011) by Linda Conner Lambeck ("New Cyberbullying Law Forces Schools to Intervene"). A second source used in this paper is written by two professors from the Cyberbullying Research Center -- Sameer Hinduja and Justin Patchin -- who take great care to present narrative that covers a wide range of issues relating to cyberbullying.

hile laws are important in terms of setting proper legal standards for expected behavior and by attempting to prevent some cyberbullying behaviors -- and in some cases punishing offenders -- laws are not the most effective strategy in terms of addressing the challenges presented through the act of cyberbullying.

Cyberbullying and the First Amendment 1Cyberbullying and the First AmendmentCyberbullying is categorized as harassment in the first amendment, and several cases have been used to explain this. According to the first amendment, cyberbullying is a kind of bullying done using any electronic communication service. It also uses cellular and other telephones, computers, cameras, electronic mail, text messaging, or instant messaging. It can also be done using an internet website, social media application, or another internet-based communication tool (Johnson, 2020).The Texas Education Code describes harassment as threatening to cause bodily injury or harm. In contrast, other students engage in other intimidating activities that could cause emotional or physical damage to others and their properties. According to the law, this could lead to restraints or physical confinement since it is the intentional cause of harm emotionally and physically to others. Cyberbullying is an example of harassment according to Texas law, and it….

Cyberbullying: Annotated Bibliography Evans, C.B.R., Cotter, K. &. Smokowski, P. (2017). Giving victims of bullying a voice:
A qualitative study of post bullying reactions and coping strategies. Child and Adolescent Social Work Journal, 34, 543–555.
All too often, the focus of research on bullying is on the perpetrators’ motivations, rather than the long-term negative impact upon the victims. This article is valuable because it addresses the fact that adolescents who are bullied are more apt to suffer from loneliness and a sense of social isolation. Its qualitative approach, via interviewing 22 victims from the same rural setting, was designed to solicit information directly from victims themselves, and has the additional value of allowing victims to speak in their own voices of the personal impact of bullying. Coping strategies included directly asking for help from adults, and also negative strategies such as lashing out physically and verbally.
Although the study does not specifically focus upon cyberbullying, it….

PAGES 9 WORDS 2826

Abstract  Bullying has been around since the beginning of recorded history, and probably well before then, as well.  However, many people express a belief that people are becoming more aware of and sensitive to bullying.  While it may be true that there is a heightened awareness of bullying, the increased sensitivity to bullies may be a misconception.  The nature of bullying has changed and evolved with technological changes.  With the advent of cyberbullying, victims are no longer able to escape from bullies.  Instead, bullies can follow victims into almost any setting.  The inability of victims to escape from their bullies for even small amounts of time seems to be exacerbating the impact of those bullies.  Victims seem more vulnerable, and victims may be taking dramatic actions, up to and including suicide, in the hopes of ending the bullying.  In this article, the author discusses cyberbullying.  The discussion begins with a definition….

Cyberbullying: A Growing Public Health ThreatIn many ways, the emergence of cyberbullying was inevitable and predictable enough given the dark side of human nature. The introduction of the Internet and the corresponding anonymity it provides has created a public health threat that endangers everyone who uses online resources such as social media or forums, and young people in particular are at an elevated risk of becoming the victims of cyberbullying today. Despite the lack of physical confrontation, cyberbullying can still cause a wide range of mental and physical disorders, including even death due to suicide. The purpose of this paper is to review the literature to provide a working definition of cyberbullying and to identify recent and current trends. Finally, a description of some of the health-related concerns that are caused by cyberbullying is followed by a summary of the findings in the conclusion.Review and DiscussionThe U.S. federal governments definition….

Bullying and Conflict in Relation to Learning About Gender and Other Forms of Equity
One of the harsh realities of life in the United States is the potential for bullying behaviors to adversely affect the learning environment for young victims, transforming the school environment from a place of learning into one that is dreaded and feared. Moreover, bullying behaviors can have a profound effect on the manner in which young people are socialized concerning gender roles as well as their perspectives concerning equity later in life. To determine the facts about these issues, this paper provides a review of the literature to develop a discussion concerning the issues of bullying and conflict in relation to learning about gender and other forms of equity and the implications these have for students and teachers. Finally, following this discussion, a summary of the research and important findings concerning these issues are presented in the….

The science of Developmental Psychology purposes and endeavors to elucidate the change that comes about in both children and adults in the course of time. I have decided to focus and lay emphasis on this topic as the most change takes place in the course of a person's lifespan during this particular period (Mcleod, 2012). Further, the topic "Developmental changes in parent-child communication throughout adolescence," lays emphasis on the individual changes and variations in the patterns of change between the association that exists between the child and the parent in the course of adolescence. Particularly important is the fact that any individual during its infancy is largely attached to the parent and therefore communicates a lot. However, according to this topic, it is delineated that the attachment and level….

Social Media and Suicide
Social Media

Internet has become a gadget of everyday use for people of 21st century. As it is offering many benefits to the users in terms of information communcaition, interaction, entertainment, socialization and earning livelihhod, there are certain dark factors related to it. The dark factors are as severe as forcing people to commit suicide. It is no exaggeration to mention that Intenet is used as a medium to harass people and get undue benefits from them.

Social media today is playing major role in enabling people and organizations to communicate and share ideas, views and knowledge with other people. The traditional methods of communication have been modified through social media platforms like chat rooms, social networking sites (Facebook, My-Space, Twitter, Google+ etc.), video sites (YouTube), discussion forums, video chat, text messages, blogs etc. (Lexton et al., 2012). The most well-known social networking website Facebook had almost million users….

Responsibilities of a Critical Thinker in a Contemporary Society
Some thinkers consider critical thinking to be solely a type of mental skill, devoid of any moral value; it is often utilized to rationalize prejudice and to promote self-interest. While moral integrity is understood as good heartedness, it is also susceptible to manipulation to satisfy vested interests in the same way as responsible citizenship can be manipulated. The human mind, regardless of conscious goodwill, is subject to the more powerful and self-deceptive egocentricity of the unconscious part of the mind. The complete development of each and every characteristic, be it critical thought, responsible citizenship, and moral integrity - needs to include cultivation of each other characteristic, in a parallel strong sense (Paul, 1993). The three characteristics of higher thought can only be developed in an environment that promotes intellectual virtues such as integrity, intellectual courage, intellectual fair-mindedness, intellectual empathy, intellectual perseverance, and….
