Cyberbullying Research Center
The Cyberbullying Research Center is based in the United States of America and is focussed on providing up-to-date information about the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of cyberbullying among adolescents.
This website serves as a clearinghouse of information concerning the ways adolescents use and misuse technology. It is intended to be a resource for parents, educators, counselors, and others who work with youth. Here you will find facts, figures, and detailed stories from those who have been directly impacted by cyberbullying incidents.
Please note: Saskatchewan students, educators and families who access this website are encouraged to look at its resources and tip sheets, share some of the many memes listed and read the Canadian research that is listed. However, the information that is specific to American laws about bullying and cyberbullying should be disregarded as the laws in place in Canada are quite different than those in place in the USA.
Students should also refrain from using the listed independent online reporting tools to report bullying incidents as there are Canadian resources that will be more helpful in resolving bullying incidents that take place in Canada. However, the links to contact social media providers directly that are listed on this site are relevant to report mis-use of their products by Canadians. A reminder that if you need help, to please contact one of the providers listed in the Get Help section of the I Am Stronger website.
