What I think happens leading up to, during, and after cyberbullying
An individual or group of individuals is targetted and attacked for any reason; with the goal of bringin to their target. This harm can eventually manifest itself in emotional, psychological or even physical harm to the target of the bullying.
How can I create a safer space
