The Psychological Impact of Cyberbullying on Adolescents
In today’s Internet age where an online presence is as important to the individual as their offline activities and life, the threat or dangers posed by activities such as cyberbullying are increasingly becoming an international public health concern, especially as this vice affects the development of adolescents. The victimization arising from cyberbullying can be so intense as to result in depressive symptoms in adolescents and even suicide attempts.
Indeed, those adolescents prone to cyberbullying are also susceptible to school bullying, and these victims will often have lower school performance and school attachment. There is need, therefore, to examine in detail the psychological impact that cyberbullying has on adolescents and their mental health, as well as various suggestions for therapy for affected victims.
