Nowadays, there is growing concern about cyber-aggression among adolescents and its (personal, family, and social) consequences, especially in this particularly vulnerable age group. Families, schools, healthcare professionals, and social workers are all trying to understand and find responses to this problem. Despite the recent advances in this field, the mechanisms by which cyber-aggression in adolescents can have significant negative effects on those involved have not been sufficiently researched. The early research in this regard nevertheless suggests that it is not only the victims, but also the aggressors and witnesses, and even their families, who may suffer the negative consequences of this dreadful experience.
This Special Issue aims to offer the reader a multidisciplinary, up-to-date view of the consequences of adolescent cyber-aggression on the psychological wellbeing of those involved, as well as the mechanisms by which those consequences occur. These consequences and mechanisms may be examined by various disciplines such as psychology, psychiatry, healthcare sciences, criminology, sociology, and related areas. Therefore, we invite all researchers who work on this topic to present high-quality, relevant, scientific studies on this subject for this Special Issue. Empirical studies are especially welcome, however systematic reviews and meta-analyses are also acceptable.
