Even though the results cannot be generalized, they contribute to an understanding of how schools are addressing cyber-bullying. All of the interviewed counselors have encountered cases of cyber-bullying among their students. The study showed that although there are no specific guidelines or policies towards cyber-bullying, the counselors are working along the policy for equal treatment of students. The issue with cyber bulling is integrated into their already existing work against bullying. (Less)
