Cyberbullying and Parental Responsibility
Albert J. Munoz-Flores Psy.D.
Director of Clinical Training, Antioch University Santa Barbara
Antioch University Seminar Series
In collaboration with Antioch University Psychology Programs
With the advent of the Internet and social media, many of the social ills that are present in society are also present in the online environment such as bullying. Bullying has been identified as a form of aggressive behavior that is present in our schools. Another form of aggressive and threatening behavior in the online environment has been identified as cyberbullying.
This presentation will provide useful information for the clinician about the history and prevalence of cyberbullying, and the degree that it impacts a young person’s ability to communicate with peers appropriately, and develop healthy social contacts at school and in the community. The impact that cyberbullying has on parents will also be discussed as well as useful information to help parents identify children who are being victimized by cyberbulling, as well as strategies to help victim of cyberbullying.
More about cyberbullying can be found at http://www.apa.org/topics/bullying/online.aspx
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Identify children and adolescents who are in distress because of online cyberbullying
- Understand the impact that online bullying has on the targeted juvenile when they are offline
- Understand and identify the potential for the young person to progress from being a victim of cyberbullying to a perpetrator
- Learn interventions so that a clinician can assist the young victim so that they will not struggle socially, improve their communication with peers, and find ways to prevent future incidents
- Provide useful strategies for parents to prevent and identify cyberbullying
