Participants will get acquainted with one of the online forms – cyberbullying. And how cyberbullying happens between adults.

  • Ice-breaker – the facilitator asks the participants a series of questions regarding cyber-bullying

(In order for the facilitator to be aware of participants understanding of the topic)

Aim – to clarify the concept of cyber-bullying for the participants, to explore the types of cyber-bullying

that exist, to clarify the type of cyber-bullying that we focus on in this training;

Description- It has the format of a facilitated discussion in which at first the participants are

invited to share their perspective and understanding, then the concept is clarified in the context

of this training.

The following questions are suggestions for how the discussion could be structured.

What is your understanding of the concept of cyber-bullying? How do you use it if you use it?

What is the connection between power and cyber-bullying?

(Whether it is mentioned by the group at this stage or not, the facilitator has to clarify for the

whole group the understanding of the concept.

Based on this way of defining – could you give examples of oppression?

(people mention here aspects that are not so much of an cyber-bullying – you can intervene and

ask those people to break down that example and to mention exactly who or what abuses power

against whom?- the idea of this kind of intervention is more to actually stimulate the group to

think things through and not to rush to put the label of “cyber-bullying” on anything.

(At this stage there will probably be mentioned abstract and concrete types of cyber-bullying)

There are many ways of cyber-bullying and we can identify them in many

life dimensions in our society – (….and you can mention again some of their examples) 

For the end you can repeat the main aspects of this discussion – defining the cyber-bullying,

and the group is informed that all these

aspects will be followed up in the next steps in the process.
