Although there is now a sizable body of research on many aspects of cyberbullying, what is missing is investigations of promising programs designed to reduce it. This book is an attempt to remedy that deficit and provide readers with information about programs that have at least preliminary evidence of efficacy or effectiveness. While the study of the motivations, mechanisms, and dynamics of cyberbullying is ongoing, we want to bring attention here to successful efforts to do something about the problem. We also want to be sure that adults have accurate information about cyberbullying. Adults often think that there is an epidemic of cyberbullying and believe it is more common than data show it to be. In fact, cyberbullying occurs much less frequently than traditional forms. Furthermore, adults may also mistakenly believe the students are more upset by incidents of cyberbullying than students report being.
