Scoping Bullying and Cyberbullying Victimization Among Gifted Adolescents in Ireland
This project aims to investigate the prevalence and impact of bullying and cyberbullying among a sample of 195 academically gifted adolescents in Ireland. A high rate of bullying and cyberbullying victimisation was detected.
