Thursday, February 14, 2013 12:30 PM–3:30 PM


School psychologists are the logical leaders to spearhead efforts to reduce and effectively respond to bullying behaviors among school-age youth. Cyberbullying is a form of bullying that is particularly challenging because of the ubiquitous nature of technology and the fact that this form of bullying transcends location. Cyberbullying prevention and intervention involves multiple focus levels, with interventions targeting students, parents, teachers, and administrators.
