Kids have been bullying each other for generations, and access to technology has brought it to a new level. Cyberbullying is defined as willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones and other electronic devices. University of Arizona researcher Sheri Bauman has written a book on the topic and has been awarded two grants to develop methods to guide researchers to develop intervention and prevention measures.
