Elgar, PhD, of the Institute for Health and Social Policy at McGill University in Canada, said in a press release. “Many adolescents use social media, and online harassment and abuse are difficult for parents and educators to monitor, so it is crucial to identify protective factors for youths who are exposed to cyberbullying.”
