What Educators and Professionals Need to Know "I'd die without my Blackberry" one young person's comment sums up a generation of young people who are increasingly living their daily lives through their phones and the internet. Cyberbullying is rife, affecting one in five 10-19 year olds. It causes anxiety, unhappiness and mental health problems; in extreme cases even leading to suicide. This book offers the tools to tackle cyberbullying and improve e-safety education. It sets out the different types of cyberbullying and how it impacts on particular groups of young people. By the age of 14 one in five young people do not follow e-safety guidelines, and the author demonstrates how a relevant, age- and gender-appropriate approach can be more effective. Incorporating the views of young people from responses to the author's survey of over 8,000 children and teenagers, the book outlines guidelines on prevention and response, and demonstrates how effective e-safety education programmes can be implemented. This is an essential resource for teachers, counsellors, youth workers, social workers, and other professionals working with children and young people.
