General Poster Session
In recent years, interest and social concern about violent peer behaviors-- both face-to-face (bullying) and through information and communication technologies (ICTs) (cyberbullying)-- have increased (Aftab, 2006; Olweus, et al., 2007; Salmivali et al., 2005). Cyberbullying consists of using the Internet (e-mail, SMS, chat, websites, blogs, online videogames), and mainly the cell phone to exert psychological harassment among peers (Ahlfors, 2010, Garaigordobil, 2011a,b; Kowalski et al., 2008). Peer violence has pernicious consequences for all involved, but with different symptoms and levels of suffering (anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress…). Although the most pronounced effects are observed in the victim, the aggressors and witnesses are also the recipients of learnings and negative habits that will affect their current and future behavior (Garaigordobil, 2011c). This work presents the characteristics of the "Cyberbullying Test to Assess Peer Violence" (Garaigordobil, in press, 2013), and its goal is to determine whether there are differences as a function of the socio-economic-cultural level, both in “face-to-face” bullying and in cyberbullying.
