This paper examines the current body of literature on the topic of bullying and cyberbullying in schools around the world. Bullying and cyberbullying represent two of the most common forms of physical and psychological harm to children today, and the negative effects caused by bullying can be incredibly severe. Various aspects of these phenomena are examined to contextualize the current problem of cyberbullying. Due to the serious implications presented by bullying for the psychological wellbeing of modern youth, understanding this phenomenon is essential in order for school authorities to have effective means of preventing bullying and cyberbullying. The paper will conclude with an examination of some current intervention efforts and considerations for the development of improved intervention efforts for the future.
