Cyber-bullying is a growing problem, but it’s so new that there’s not much research about it. So Krystal D’Costa begins her work studying cyber-bullying by considering what goes into real-world bullying.
Each week, Kevin Zelnio, Razib Khan, and I choose one or more journal articles to discuss in podcast form. This week, while Kevin is on vacation, we’ve brought Krystal in to discuss her work. Ideally, you’ll read the blog post first to get a general understanding of the research, then listen to our podcast to hear our impressions. Here are the articles we’re discussing this week:
Mayer, J., Salovey, P., & Caruso, D. (2004). TARGET ARTICLES: “Emotional Intelligence: Theory, Findings, and Implications” Psychological Inquiry, 15 (3), 197-215 DOI: 10.1207/s15327965pli1503_02
Snyder, J., Brooker, M., Patrick, M., Snyder, A., Schrepferman, L., & Stoolmiller, M. (2003). Observed Peer Victimization During Early Elementary School: Continuity, Growth, and Relation to Risk for Child Antisocial and Depressive Behavior Child Development, 74 (6), 1881-1898 DOI: 10.1046/j.1467-8624.2003.00644.x
Krystal wrote about it on her blog Anthropology in Practice:
Since this remains an experimental project, we’d appreciate any feedback you can offer on the podcast.
