Cyber bullying - a new phenomenon

Contrary to normal bullying is cyberbullying a new phenomenon and foremost it can be performed 24/7 and even outside of the school yard.

As there is no direct contact between the bullies and the victims there is little braveness needed and only a small barrier to start cyber bullying. In 80% of the cases cyberbullying is not happening as an isolated event but continues after school and classes.

In the early 1990s, the two authors were brought in on a special case of bullying and developed a 7-point plan. This has proven to be successful. In the years that followed, the concept was further developed and also transferred to many other countries (including Germany, Sweden, Austria)

What is bullying?

Kids and pupils have always been teasing and huffing each other. Not every verbal or non verbal aggression is considered bullying though.

We call it bullying when:

  • Kids are harassed over a longer period of time
  • The same kids are always the victims
  • There is a difference in power between the bullying kids and the victims
  • The bullying attacks are usually performed in hidden environments (so that teachers and adults can't see it)

Bullying one person can increase cohesion in the rest of the class, just like clarifying identity in a group. In addition, the bullied person serves as a lightning rod for displeasure and provides topics for conversation and entertainment for the class.

Therefore, the whole class does not always want the harassment to stop. If the teaching staff underlines this with statements ("he or she is actually a bit weird"), the situation becomes more difficult for those concerned and seems unsolvable.
