Cyberbullying Workshop for Post Primary Students
Empowering Teens to Deal Effectively with Bullying in the Online World
In an increasingly digital world, Cyberbullying is now ubiquitous and often impossible to escape. It is essential that young people are taught how to recognise and deal with cyberbullying incidents so that they can protect themselves and their peers. Cyberbullying occurs when one person bullies another using some form of technology. It can include harassment, impersonation, exclusion, denigration or outing. Social Media Platforms, Gaming Chat Forums and even basic messaging apps provide the perfect mediums for cyberbullying. This workshop explores the reasons for it, how the victim may feel, and what to do if you are either the victim or the bully.
