Description:

The paper describes how the article "Involvement in Traditional and Electronic Bullying by Adolescents" by Raskauskas and Stoltz (2007) examines the relationship between involvement in traditional bullying and participation in electronic bullying among adolescents. The paper looks at how the authors note at the outset of the paper that today's generation of adolescents is the first to have grown up in a society in which access to Internet and cell phone technologies is a common element of daily life. The paper describes how the authors review the psychological literature on traditional bullying, noting the negative associations between bullying and development for not only those who are bullied but also the bullies themselves (555). The paper relates that there is, to date, little research on the relationship between traditional bullying and electronic bullying, and even less on the use of cell phone technologies (e.g., text messaging and picture cell phones) in this bullying (566). The paper explains that this study addresses this gap by examining two research hypotheses: (a) that being a traditional bully and victim will predict being, respectively, an electronic bully and victim; and (b) that adolescents victimized in traditional bullying will become electronic bullies to retaliate against their aggressors (566).
