This research takes a journey through different aspects of cyberbullying in Spanish schools, including sociodemographic data, use of ICTs, the prevalence of bullying in different regions or the results of measures implemented to combat this problem. The measures established educational work to be undertaken with whole schools (whole policy) and with adults responsible for children (teacher training and activities with families). In addition, these authors cite studies in which there is implementation of various measures undertaken on the various actors of the educational community, such as teacher training, family activities, cooperative learning with students, or training in management responses and training emotional empathy for the aggressors.
