[Autom. eng. transl.] In 2017, the first national law on cyberbullying was promulgated in Italy. This important legislative intervention has defined a new panorama for the intervention, obliging the scholastic institutions and the operators (psychologists and educators) who collaborate with them to activate concrete actions of intervention against this serious problem, in alarming growth between children and adolescents. In light of this change, how is it possible to set up effective measures against electronic bullying? How important is it to integrate the fight against traditional bullying into these actions? How much the worrying spread of cyberbullying is connected to the use of the technologies of the very young and to the new sociality that these promote? What psychological and group processes increase the risk of bullying and cyberbullying? The volume aims to answer these questions, in the light of the indications produced by scientific research, and is aimed at teachers, operators, experts in educational and communicative processes, parents, students and all those who want to better understand and prevent these phenomena.
