This interactive workshop will look at cyberbullying in its many forms and the detrimental and lasting impact that it can have on young people. We will look at which groups of children are particularly vulnerable to being bullied and/or bullying others and what evidence-based measures have been shown to be most (and least) effective in helping to reduce cyberbullying. This workshop will also talk about children’s online and offline behaviors and how they can influence e-safety. We will discuss how parents and educators can work with young people to form a healthy sense of respect for the internet and the intrinsic role it plays in our lives, as well as some of the facts and misconceptions surrounding the safety of the online world.
