Cyber-bullying not as emotionally harmful as it seems

A new study from the University of New Hampshire, published in the American Psychological Association journal of Psychology of Violence, has found that cyber-bullying is usually less emotionally damaging than person-to-person bullying, which can result in injury, involve a social power differential and may have happened a number of times.  The combination of technology-based and in-person bullying was found to be the most damaging.  The authors suggest that educators need to be well-informed of both types of bullying and how they impact students.
