OJJDP/NIJ Bulletin Examines Role of Technology in Youth Harassment Victimization

November 29, 2016

OJJDP/NIJ BulletinOJJDP and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) have released “The Role of Technology in Youth Harassment Victimization.” This bulletin summarizes the findings of the NIJ-sponsored Technology Harassment Victimization study, which is a follow-up study to the second National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence sponsored by OJJDP. The study examined technology-involved harassment within the context of other types of youth victimization and risk factors. The data reveal that mixed-peer harassment—involving both in-person and technology-based elements—is the most traumatic for victims, especially those who have been victimized in multiple ways in the past and are facing numerous stressors in their present lives.
