ECIP (European Cyberbullying Intervention Project)

Cyberbullying in adolescence: investigation and intervention in six European Countries

The project represents a deepening and extension of the proposed activities under the Programme DAPHNE II ("An investigation into forms of peer-peer bullying at school in pre-adolescent groups: new instruments and preventing strategies"). 

The first objective of the project is to study the characteristics and distribution of cyberbullying (Cyberbullying) in Europe (Italy- Emilia Romagna and Calabria- Spain, England, Greece, Germany and Poland) among adolescents of secondary school degree.

Starting from the results, the second objective of the project is planning interventions in adolescents at risk of violence, with the aim of promoting the development of prosocial behaviour, reducing antisocial behaviour and the involvement of adolescents in cyberbullying. Finally, the ultimate goal of the project is the dissemination of the results obtained with the creation of guidelines for Europe.

The referral program is the Daphne III Programme 2009-2010 (To Prevent and Combat Violence Against Children, young people and women and to protect victims and groups at risk). The purpose of the program is to support organizations working to develop measures of investigation and instruments of action to prevent and combat all forms of violence against children, adolescents and women.
