The modern day bullying : cyber bullying among teenagers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att få en djupare förståelse om professionellas upplevelser av nätmobbning bland ungdomar 14-16 år. För att besvara syftet har sex halvstrukturerade intervjuer genomförts med professionella som arbetar i nära kontakt med ungdomar inom skolväsendet och socialt arbete. För att analysera resultatet har symbolisk interaktionism använts samt begreppen attityder och normer. Resultatet påvisade att ungdomar som utsätts för nätmobbning kan uppvisa depressiva symtom, självskadebeteende samt, i vissa fall, har självmordsförsök utförts. En bidragande faktor till varför nätmobbning förekommer i den utsträckning som det gör är att ungdomar kan vara anonyma på internet. Anonymiteten bidrar till att ungdomar kan vara elaka mot varandra utan att ta ansvar för sitt handlande. Genom att informera och upplysa ungdomar om följderna av att utsätta någon för nätmobbning ansågs vara det effektivaste verktyget för att förebygga att nätmobbning förekommer enligt intervjupersonerna. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of the professionals experiences of cyber bullying among teenagers of the age 14-16. To answer the purpose of the study six semi-structured interviews were performed with professionals who work in close contact with teenagers within the school system and social work. To analyze the results symbolic interactionism is used as well as concepts of attitude and norms. The results demonstrated that teenagers that have experienced cyber bullying can exhibit symptom of depression, self harming behavior and in certain cases performed suicide attempts. One contributing factor to why cyber bullying present to the extent it does is because teenagers are able to be anonymous on the internet. Being anonymous contributes to teenagers being able to act cruel towards each other with little repercussion. By informing teenagers and drawing attention to the impact cyber bullying have on a person is considered the most effective way to prevent cyber bullying to present itself according to interviewed people.
