Cyberbullying prevention: A reasoned action approach to intervention design

This research examines young people’s experiences with cyberbullying. Specifically, what underlying beliefs favourable to perpetration function to perpetuate these problematic behaviours. Given the fluidity in bullying roles, consideration is also given to bystander engagement and beliefs which function to prevent active intervention in cyberbullying incidents. The outcome of this research will be the development of an intervention framework to prevent cyberbullying. To achieve this, we are conducting a two-phase study consisting of interviews and survey administration.
