  • A review of most current research
  • Examples to help parents and educators identify electronic aggression
  • Prevention tips for parents and caregivers
  • Preventions strategies for educators and educational policy makers
  • Prevention tactics for school districts, policy makers and parents

Who:

These resources were developed by CDC′s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, and the Adolescent Health Goal Team.

Where:

Electronic Media and Youth Violence is available at http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/dvp/electronic_aggression.htm.
