DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS:

This book provides an up to date account of the constantly evolving problem of cyberbullying: the different forms it can take, how the impact differs on boys and girls of different ages, and which children are most vulnerable.

Drawing on the findings of the author's survey of over 9,000 children and teenagers, âCyberbullying and E-safetyâ provides a revealing account of the direct experiences and views of children. It describes how a new world where emerging technologies have transformed online social behaviour and which require a new, more relevant approach to e-safety and the problem of cyberbullying.

The author provides this in the form of a youth-led, age- and gender-appropriate model for cyber-education in the modern world; a 3-tier model comprising universal e-safety education accompanied by targeted and intensive support and advice for children at most risk.

She also outlines a school-wide model for preventing and responding to cyberbullying in children, young people and teachers, and provides a wealth of guidance and tools for individuals and schools including templates and lesson plans

REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

This book contains excellent, up to date, advice for teachers, headteachers and all those working with young people to try to reduce cyberbullying, in any environment. It really brings home to the reader the need to help young people to understand the tremendous power they have at their finger tips and the dangers of using that power without thought to the possible consequences.

It is a well-balanced and accessible text which provides a comprehensive overview of current research and policy in the field. This text provides excellent guidance and useful practical strategies for individuals and schools on how to tackle cyberbullying and improve e-safety for children, young people and professionals in schools and the wider community.

I would not hesitate to recommend this book for anyone working to reduce bullying in schools or anywhere young people are experiencing this problem.
