Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this study is to examine if and to what extent the personnel at the local school perceive offensive treatment through the social media among the students and what the personnel thinks about the responsibility of the school to prevent this type of abuse. Offensive treatment through the social media has become a common occurrence among youth and affects health in both psychological and physical ways. As offensive treatment through the social media often takes place outside of school in the students spare time the responsibility of their health is unclear. But since it affects their school results the school has a responsibility to act, which is confirmed by legislation. However, the legislation does not mention offensive treatment through the social media and the school has no distinct guidelines to prevent this form of offensive treatment. Therefore many schools use prevention programs designed for traditional bullying and it is based on local conditions in each school. This leads to differences among how school handle offensive treatment through the social media. It is therefore interesting to investigate how the school personnel perceive offensive treatment through the social media as it affects their work against it.This study is based on the results from qualitative semi – structured interviews with school- and leisure personnel from three different secondary schools. The results show that there is a significant difference between how the school personnel understand the occurrence of offensive treatment through the social media among the students in the different schools and how the school personnel handle it. The measures that are updated and implemented in these schools are dependent on the prevailing climate at each school, which affects the understanding of the problem and its existence.
