New CSN Blog: Youth Cyberbullying During the COVID-19 Crisis
In 2019, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey indicated nearly 16% of high school students had been cyberbullied in the previous year. Defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as any bullying that occurs through technology, the global COVID-19 pandemic has created a perfect storm of risk factors for youth cyberbullying, including:

  • increased time online
  • the emotional impact of social distancing
  • limited availability of adult monitoring

In our new blog post, CSN’s Erin Ficker, co-manager of the Child Safety Learning Collaborative, discusses with firsthand interviews the roles parents, teachers, schools, and Title V agencies can play to prevent cyberbullying during this particularly trying time.
