In breve

Cyberbullying is a newtopic in international research.However, recent studies have pointed out howthis phenomenon is existing and howit is expanding in relation to the growth of the newtechnologies. In the first part of the text the theoretical implications of cyberbullying are critically discussed through the presentation of international studies; in the second part, newquantitative and qualitative data on cyberbullying are presented in large samples of pre-adolescents and adolescents, including a qualitative interpretation of single cases and showing different scenarios in Italy, Spain and Bosnia-Herzegovina. The different chapters point to a polyphonic interpretation of the specificity of cyberbullying in the light of developmental, social and clinical psychology, of educational sciences, of sociology, not excluding a legal interpretation of the cases treated. This text offers a chance for reflection to students, parents, educators, teachers, school board directors and to all thosewho are involved in the relational dynamics among pre-adolescents and adolescents, connected to the benefits and risks of the newtechnologies.
