Abstract

The aim of the report is to introduce cyberbullying as socio-pathological phenomena realized in a virtual environment. It is focused on mapping cyberbullying with adolescents and to find out differences in the extent of their social support. The results show a higher percentage of bullying being done on the internet mainly by the means of exclusion. Results also exhibit significant differences in the extent of social support by parents. In conclusion, there are proposed recommendations by the authors concerning the need for involvement of social workers in the higher education environment.
