Dissecting Cyberbullying: An Interview with Dr. Justin W. Patchin

Cyberbullying is a pandemic which affects thousands of teens each year. Despite that fact, it isn’t impossible to stop its harmful effects in their tracks. The worst part about cyberbullying is the fact that kids who are indulging in damaging behaviors don’t realize the impact they have on their victims – in the same vein, victims have trouble speaking up against the torment that they’re going through. People like parents and teachers can take active steps against the problem, in order to contain it.

Recently, Mobistealth got together with Dr. Justin W. Patchin, Co-Director of the Cyberbullying Research Center to discuss the ins and outs of cyberbullying. Dr. Pachin is an authority on the matter and served as a Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He’s additionally penned several resourceful guides on how cyberbullying should be dealt with. Parents and teachers can band together and help nourish kids in a way that they remain free of the negative long-lasting impacts of cyberbullying.
