Cyberbullying Research Center

The Cyberbullying Research Center provides stakeholders with up-to-date information about the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of cyberbullying among adolescents. The site serves as a clearinghouse of information concerning the ways adolescents use and misuse technology. The intent of the site is for parents, educators, counselors, and other community leaders to use the information on the site as a resource for those who work with youth. This site will give you facts, figures, detailed stories, and numerous resources to help you prevent and respond to cyberbullying incidents.

The Center is directed by Dr. Sameer Hinduja (Florida Atlantic University) and Dr. Justin Patchin (University of Wisconsin-Eau Clair). Dr. Hinduja was invited by the Shared Services Network as a guest speaker at the 2014 Child Protection  Conference.
