Abstract:

In April of 2007, Kids Help Phone published Cyber-bullying: Our Kids’ New Reality. The report collected responses from over 2,500 young people on the topic of cyberbullying, which was at that time, a very new phenomenon. Since then, cyberbullying has gained significant attention in research, counselling, and educational settings. It has also become a well-known issue among the general public in Canada, particularly after online harassment was implicated in the suicides of several young people in late 2010 and early 2011.

This document is a follow-up to our 2007 report. In it, we will discuss the most recent research-based information on cyberbullying, and provide a short “then and now” overview of a more recent cyberbullying survey that we posted to our website in order to highlight some of the trends in online behaviour that our users have shared with us. The report will conclude with revisited recommendations on what adults can do to support young people as they navigate an increasingly technologically mediated social reality.
