Four Important Tactics to Deal with Cyber Bullying in Australia

With a new high-tech society, an unfortunate reality brings forth a new way to bully. A recent study found that “About 37% of young people between the ages of 12 and 17 have been bullied online. 30% have had it happen more than once.” More often than not, students in Australia are not prepared to properly respond to cyberbullying or how to healthily move on after it occurs.

The Four Ways to Tackle Cyber Bullying in Australia

Leaders of Evolution feels that these five tactics are essential for students in Australia to combat cyberbullying. Our courses prepare students with each of these skills and more! Whether you choose to implement just one of these ideals or all, you will be better prepared to take on these challenges.

1. Gaining a Sense of Self-Awareness

Leaders of Evolutions defines self-awareness as having a profound knowledge of yourself as an individual. With a better understanding of yourself, you are significantly less likely to succumb to the pain of cyberbullying and its harmful effects. Being self-aware also means that you are able to determine how your behaviour impacts others, therefore preventing you from accidentally engaging in cyberbullying. Self-awareness means knowing things like:

  • your personal values
  • your strengths and areas to improve
  • how you react emotionally to different situations

2. Engaging in Peer to Peer Learning

We all know how the saying goes: teamwork makes the dreamwork. This is no different than in the case of tackling cyberbullying in Australia. Peer to peer learning helps students develop skills such as leadership, compassion, patience, and gratitude. These are all great ways to prevent the bystander effect from occurring as students will be cognisant and concerned with their peers’ emotional well-being. 

3. Creating a Safe Environment

Leaders of Evolution helps students identify safe environments. This means determining when an environment is unsafe or uncomfortable, whether it be for them or their peers. Being able to identify when something is off helps students when creating a safer alternative. A safe environment means that everyone’s feelings and emotions are accounted for, and their needs are met. Students in Australia battling cyberbullying can recognise that this is not a safe environment, and they must do what they can to fix the situation. 

4. Enhancing the 4 C’s– Competence, Confidence, Character, Connectedness

Each of our courses follows our 4 C’s learning curriculum, so you can expect students to be leaving each lesson with their Competence, Confidence, Character, and Connectedness enhanced. Leaders of Evolution believes that these traits can be put to use in any given environment, but are especially useful when approaching cyberbullies. Students will feel confident in their ability to fix a dangerous situation and be eager to do what they can to help themselves and their peers.
