Recent study on Cyber-bullying in Spain: I Study on Cyber-bullying according to those affected

Mutua Madrileña Foundation and ANAR Foundation, in Spain, have conducted the first study on cyber-bullying from the point of view of those affected. The study estimates that 1 in 4 cases of harassment occurs through technological means. This proportion increases with age so after 13 years old, 36.5% of cases of bullying (more than one in three) are cyber-bullying.
In addition, 70% of victims of cyber-bullying are girls. That is, seven out of ten cases of cyber-stalking victims are girls. This highlights the gendered nature of cyber-bulling, as it affects disproportionately girls and teenage girls.
According to the study, 92% of victims suffer some kind of psychological sequel, being the most frequent anxiety, followed by sadness, loneliness and low self-esteem.
The study was conducted based on the analysis of the database Calls ANAR Telephone Help for Children and Adolescents and the phone ANAR Adult and Family, which from 2013 to 2015 has attended 60,408 calls related to bullying of young people themselves or families affected, among which have been identified and followed 1,363 cases of bullying.

Book on bullying, awarded with the Catalan Literary Award Roc Boronat 2016

La ràbia (Rage), a brave novel about bullying by author Lolita Bosch, has won Catalan Literary Award Roc Boronat 2016. The jury awarded Lolita Bosch’s work unanimously because La ràbia is more than a necessary testimonial. It it’s a novel for everyone, told in first person. It is the account of many –way too many– bullied teens, from now and from 30 years ago, as the author herself. A novel everyone ought to read.
The author has created an intertwined story between her own experience of being bullied when she was a teenager, and the current experience of teenagers nowadays. She dedicated the award to everyone who has ever been bullied, but especially to three of the teenagers she interviewed during her research, who accompanied her to the event.
