As the digital world assumes an ever-increasing role in the daily lives of the public, opportunities to engage in crimes increase as well. Prevention of cyber aggression is an ongoing challenge due to its multifaceted nature and the difficulties in realizing effective interventions. Consequences of cyber aggression can range from emotional and psychological distress to death by suicide or homicide. Enduring prevention programs need to be defined taking into consideration that the digital revolution changes interpersonal relationships. This title explores the effects of cyberbullying and cyberstalking on children and examines solutions that can identify and prevent online harassment through both policy and legislation reform and technological tools. Covers cyberbullying, fake profile identification, and victimization. For policymakers, educators, principals, school counsellors, therapists, government officials, politicians, lawmakers, academicians, administrators, and researchers.
