Cyberbullying: The Psychological Effects on Teens

Cyberbullying is the repeated and willful use of digital technology to harass, threaten, embarrass or target another person. Cyberbullies use cell phones, computers and tablets. They use email, text messaging, social media, apps, forums and gaming in their efforts to humiliate their peers and others. With today’s mandatory need for smartphones and 24-7 access to social media platforms, anyone can be a perpetual target. But because teens and young adults access these digital platforms so often, they are the most vulnerable. Staying “connected” online with friends is not always as innocent as it appears. Here a few things to consider about cyberbullying: Cyberbullying is easier to commit than traditional acts of bullying because the perpetrator doesn’t have to confront the victim in person. It can also be perpetrated anonymously, so victims often don’t know who is targeting them. Perpetrators get to operate outside the view of adults making it harder for parents to recognize and address it, if and when their kids are being victimized. For victims themselves, it can feel like there’s no escape. While the school day typically ends in mid-afternoon, the Internet never closes down.

CONCLUSION: This study confirmed published results that labour progresses more slowly as maternal BMI increases. The study was performed in a centre with a specialized BMI pregnancy clinic; thus weight gain adherence, awareness of labour differences, and patient counselling may have contributed to low Caesarean section rates. Obstetric care providers should consider differences in maternal BMI in labour progression before undertaking a potentially premature Caesarean birth, especially in primiparas.

AbstractPurpose of reviewExtensive resources have been devoted to implementing evidence-based psychotherapies (EBPs) to facilitate the best available treatments to clients. Yet, when treatment settings or client characteristics do not align with the contexts in which an EBP was developed and tested, adaptations may be indicated. The purpose of this article is to provide a summary of the adaptation literature and highlight key issues, using Cognitive Processing Therapy as an example throughout the paper.Recent findingsInformed by the literature to date, we use Stirman and colleagues ’ Framework for Reporting Adaptatio...

Such a structure with middle and low melting points solders could prevent the infrastructure of 3D packages from collapse caused by overweight of stacked dies on substrates. Furthermore, a low bonding temperature could reduce the consumption of thermal budget during chip fabrication. By introducing Ni-doped Sn-Ag-Cu solder, t...
