Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. classify cyberbullying as a growing international health concern.
  2. assess the validity of a recently published cyberbullying assessment tool.
  3. compare cyberbullying prevalence and forms between developing and developed nations.


As developing countries experience considerable and steady increases in access to technology and internet, it is important to extend the literature on cyberbullying internationally. This poster presentation will provide the results of a study intended to characterize cyberbullying and technology use in Belize, a developing nation. Such results will help researchers and educators gain insight into how cyberbullying is a growing international health concern.
