Abstract
Bullying has been engrained in American society since the country’s founding. Bred from a capitalistic
economy and competitive social hierarchy, bullying has remained a relevant issue through the years. Techno-
logical bullying, known today as cyberbullying, has allowed the problem to expand, become more elusive, and
even harder to define. A thorough analysis of various case studies, statistical research, law cases, and news
articles was conducted to understand the issue of cyberbullying and to find preventative measures that should
be taken. This paper illuminates the background situation, current legal struggles, clinical implications, and
potential preventative steps concerning bullying and cyberbullying alike.
I. Introduction
Each day schoolchildren learn valuable skills and lessons from their teachers as well as through interactions with their peers. Although school, undoubtedly, is beneficial to America’s youth, there are some experiences, such as bullying, that may negatively affect and stick with these children for the rest of their lives.
Certain children find an outlet for their frustrations through bullying others. In the past, these actions could be better controlled because they were limited to face-to-face interactions. However, in recent years, this age-old conflict has matched the pace of technological evolutions, making it more dangerous and harder to contain. Cellphones, social media sites, chat rooms, and other forms of technology have allowed bullying to expand into cyberspace. This new form of abuse is known as cyberbullying. The following research paper focuses on both traditional bullying and cyberbullying. The paper provides background information about bullying, defines the problem and where it is focused, looks at the clinical and legal issues that surround both forms of bullying, and discusses possible preventative programs.
