New study examines the evidence on youth violence in social media

Alison Grodzinski Media/News 8 Comments

A new study from Dr. Desmond Patton at the University of Michigan School of Social Work was just published that demonstrates that youth violence, including bullying, gang violence, and self-directed violence, increasingly occurs in the online space.   The research team reviewed over 56 articles published between 2001 and 2013 on youth violence and online social media and found that  while some forms of online violence are limited to Internet-based interactions, others are directly related to face-to-face acts of violence. The review explores issues of sexual violence, cyber-bullying, gang violence and cyber-suicide. The review concludes that youth violence is occurring online and may be predictive of offline risk behavior,  however, most of the existing studies are descriptive in nature and further research is needed to better inform future interventions.
