Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka förekomsten av nätmobbning, reaktioner och psykisk hälsa i samband med detta nya fenomen. Metoden som användes var en tvärsnittsstudie med en webbaserad enkät som genomfördes på 18–19-åringar i gymnasiet. Sammanlagt 75 ungdomar deltog i undersökningen. Resultatet visade att det var vanligare att drabbas av nätmobbning än av traditionell mobbning. Offren för nätmobbning rapporterade sämre hälsa än icke drabbade och led av självskadebeteende. Den vanligaste reaktionen i samband med nätmobbning var att bli ledsen och att drabbas av ångest. Nätmobbning var också vanligare på det studieförberedande gymnasieprogrammet. Slutsatsen som kan dras är att nätmobbning är ett utbrett fenomen bland unga vuxna och nätmobbningsoffer mår sämre än icke-drabbade samt att de drabbade led av självmordstankar. Skolan bör skapa tydliga riktlinjer som kontinuerligt kontrolleras och kommuniceras till personal och elever. Det behövs mer forskning på detta område för att undersöka orsakerna och beteende både hos offer och förövare för att kunna skapa åtgärder för att förebygga och hantera fall av nätmobbning. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of cyberbullying, reactions and mental health associated with this new phenomenon. The method used was a cross sectional study with a web-based survey which was conducted on 18-19 year olds in high school. A total of 75 young adults completed the survey. The result showed that it was more likely to suffer from cyberbullying than traditional bullying. The victims of cyberbullying reported poorer health than non-affected and suffered from self-injuries, the most common reaction associated with cyberbullying was to feel sad and suffer from anxiety. Cyberbullying was more common at the college preparatory high school program. The conclusion that can be drawn is that cyberbullying is a widespread phenomenon among young adults and cyberbullying victims feel worse than non-affected and victims also suffered from suicidal thoughts. The school should create clear guidelines on how to handle cyberbullying, and these should continuously be monitored and communicated to staff and students. More research in this area is needed to investigate the causes and behavior of both victims and perpetrators to create methods to prevent and manage cases of cyberbullying.
