Program Description

Technological advances have provided organizational and personal advantages that have changed methods of communication forever. While families and friends can be easily connected and businesses have expanded beyond once traditional boundaries, today's youth have also found technology. Despite the advantages of social media there is a risk of youth being exposed to cyber bullying. Cyberbullying has similarities to traditional bullying with both having negative effects on the victims’ mental health and educational performance.
