About the Report

In a new bulletin, NIJ and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention examine the intersection of technology-involved harassment, in-person peer victimization, and mixed types of victimization, to help improve current policy and practice regarding the issue and to inform future research.

This research makes an important contribution as one of the first national studies to provide detailed incident-level data on the role of online technology in youth harassment and to explore the connection between harassment victims’ experiences and prior victimizations across a range of domains.
