Two new Research Highlights have been published by the Evidence Group of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety.

The Evidence Group provides the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) with helpful summaries of relevant and new research.

The Series aims to keep UKCCIS, and the wider public up to date with current research.

We’re pleased to share that the Evidence Group have published two new Research Highlights, which are the 109th and 110th summaries in the series. 

Research Highlight 109

Cyberbullying Involvement Roles and Viewing of Suicide-Related Web-Content

Giving an overview of the results of a study investigating the relationships between cyberbullying roles, viewing of specific suicide-related web content, and psychological problems in young people. Data from across 25 European countries were analysed. This was collected as part of the EU Kids Online Study

Research Highlight 110

Adolescents and Self-Taken Sexual Images: A Review of the Literature

This highlight gives a summary of the results of a review of the literature relating to sexting behaviours among young people aged under 25 across nine interdisciplinary databases (e.g., psychology, sociology, health, media studies and education). The review examined young people’s experiences of sending (rather than receiving or viewing) nude or nearly nude pictures or images via a mobile or online, as well as related risks and consequences.
