Bullying is a complex and widespread phenomenon of victimization that can be observed in all countries of the world. The new technologies, especially social networks, used daily by people around the world further increase the risk of cyberbullying phenomena. The adverse consequences and risk factors for mental health and behavioral problems as a result of bullying are well known.
This research topic aims to unite interdisciplinary and cultural perspectives from international researchers to highlight theoretical and empirical research on the relationships between cyberbullying, victimization, mental health, and behavioral difficulties, particularly among adolescents.
For this reason, and considering the participation and contributions of colleagues from different countries, we are proposing a second research topic on this subject, in order to deepen and broaden our understanding of the context and consequences of the phenomenon.
To this end, we solicit manuscripts from researchers addressing the following topics:
- Risk factors mediating the relationships between cyberbullying, victimization, and mental health;
- The role of social networks as a risk factor for cyberbullying;
- Supportive prevention strategies in school, educational, and cognitive behavioral settings.
