Title: Combined victimization of face-to-face and cyberbullying and adverse health outcomes among school-age adolescents in Argentina

Journal: Psychology, Health, and Medicine


Abstract: Face-to-face bullying victimization (FBV) and cyber bullying victimization (CBV) are of global concern, including in Latin America. The aim of this study was to evaluate the associations between combined FBV and CBV relative to single victimization (FBV or CBV) and no victimization with a wide range of adverse health outcomes among school-aged adolescents from Argentina. National cross-sectional school data from 56,981 adolescents that responded to questions on FBV, CBV, and adverse health outcomes were analyzed. The results showed a prevalence of 18.7% FBV alone, 8.1% CBV alone and 13.6% combined FBV and CBV. Combined FBV and CBV had higher odds than single victimization (FBV or CBV) in 18 negative health outcomes, including anxiety, suicidal ideation, loneliness, suicide plan and attempt, smoking, smokeless tobacco use, history of intoxication, alcohol-related problems, current cannabis use, ever use of amphetamine, school truancy, participation in physical fighting, physically attacked, injury, ever sex, multiple sexual partners and sedentary behavior. In conclusion, combined FBV and CBV had higher odds than single BV or no BV in most adverse health outcomes.

Title: What does the argentine written press report about the phenomenon of cyberbullying?

Journal: Interdisciplinaria [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.1, pp.5-6


Abstract: In recent years, the terms “bullying” and “cyberbullying” have been adopted by the Argentinian media, including the written press. These are technical terms that refer to specific problems. The local press has adopted them in order to report about the characteristics, consequences, and possible approaches to these situations. The analysis of the press’ publications on a certain phenomenon enables us to see interesting aspects of the process of dissemination of information, the discourse used and the collective consciousness it creates. Therefore, the general objective of this work is focused on investigating the type of information and contents regarding cyberbullying in the Argentinian press. A qualitative methodological approach was used, which included the use of a thematic and content analysis. It is noted that only a low proportion of journalism articles was found in which the three basic characteristics of the cyberbullying were pointed out (the intentionality, the repetition in time and the existence of an imbalance of power). In addition, it is observed that the written press provides more information related to the characteristics and possible approaches to cyberbullying, and, to a lesser extent, to its detection. The negative consequences of this problem regarding the psychological health of those involved are mentioned, highlighting indicators and individual consequences, but without referring to indicators or to collective, institutional or social consequences. The development of a hostile and unsupportive school environment, the normalization of aggressive behaviors, the positive assessment of violent behavior in order to obtain social success, and the possible consequences for teachers and families are not mentioned by the press. Also, it is observed that the press gives little room to the students’ point of view, who, from their experiences, attitudes and perspectives on this phenomenon, could make important contributions for the development of both prevention strategies and effective boarding tools. The findings obtained are discussed through thematic and content analysis in order to broaden the knowledge about this phenomenon in our local environment. Within the limitations of this study, it is worth mentioning that the different publications began the digitization of their copies in different years, which could affect the total number of articles surveyed and the amount registered for each of the digital portals. Likewise, for this study, only two descriptors were used to carry out the search, so future studies could incorporate other terms in order to broaden and deepen the findings. This could also contribute to generate other analysis categories, in order to record other aspects related to the type and content of information not addressed in this study.

Title: Psychoanalytic and systematic research on cyberbullying in high school students from Argentina, Mexico and Uruguay

Journal: International Conference of Research and Professional Practice in Psychology


Abstract: This paper will present the progress of a research accredited by the Argentine Psychoanalytic Association, which aims to explore the subjective and bonding characteristics of cyberbullying (victims and perpetrators) from a psychoanalytic perspective. The sample consisted of 329 participants (adolescents between 15 and 18 years of age from Argentina, Mexico and Uruguay) through the administration of a questionnaire with open questions used by Lanzilloti and Korman. In addition, an interview was conducted with an 18-year-old girl from Sinaloa, Mexico who went through a situation of cyberbullying and identity theft on social networks. The analysis of the information was carried out using the classical psychoanalytic method. Different axes of analysis were identified from the crossover between the questionnaires and the interview: 1) The difficulty of the victim to disconnect with the scene since there is a constant interaction with the cell phone or the computer. 2) Invisibility on the part of the harasser while hiding through anonymity, pseudonyms or false accounts. 3) Mastery drive or empowerment. 4) I fixed or in regression to the functioning of the purified I-pleasure. These concepts will be discussed in such a way that they allow addressing the intersubjective plot present in situations of cyberbullying.

Title: Reasons for Bullying and Cyberbullying from the Students’ Perspective. Study with teenagers from Buenos Aires.

Journal: Unable to find journal name, but this is the institution… Pontificia Universidad Católica del Ecuador – Sede Esmeraldas


Abstract: The objective of this work is to investigate and describe the reasons that students aged between 13 and 18 years, enrolled in schools located in the territory of Buenos Aires, Argentina, relate to the phenomenon of bullying, both in its traditional form and as cybernetics –cyberbullying-. Likewise, it is proposed to distinguish the motives adduced by the students considering their role of implication, victim or aggressor, in each one of these modalities. A descriptive, cross-sectional and non-experimental study was carried out, using a non-probabilistic sample by accessibility, consisting of 259 students (67.1% women, age M = 15.6, SD = 1.6), to whom the versions were administered adapted from the instruments called Cuestionario sobre Intimidación y Maltrato entre Iguales, Escala CYB – VIC y Escala CYB – AG. The results obtained allow us to observe that students relate the situations of bullying with different reasons such as provocation, the asymmetry of power between those who abuse and those who are mistreated, the perception of weakness, the need to belong to the group, the negative perception of individual differences and the fact of making a hoax. It is also noted that the reasons referred to by the students are reported in dissimilar proportions, considering their role of involvement as a victim or as an aggressor, both in situations of bullying and cyberbullying. The practical implications of the results found are discussed in order to favor the appropriate approach to school abuse between students.
