Resource Title Cyberbullying and Strain
Summary A Research Summary factsheet from the Cyberbullying Research Center providing insight on a current study using a popular contemporary criminological theory-general strain theory (GST)- to contribute to what is known about the factors associated with both traditional and nontraditional forms of bullying.

GST argues that individuals who experience strain, and as a result of it, feel angry or frustrated, are more at risk to engage in deviant behavior. The study asks the question, "Are youth who experience strain more likely to engage in bullying?"
