What is a Cyberbullying video? Are cyberbullying videos helpful or hurtful and how to talk to children about cyberbullying? All are questions answered in today’s exclusive interview with Peter Turco on The Cyberbullying Video.
In This interview, NoBullying.com Founder Ciaran Connolly talks to Peter Turco on all things related to the cyberbullying video and cyberbullying in general.
With 22 years in practice, Peter Turco has worked with a variety of issues, with emphasis on an analytic and insight-oriented work designed to instill better understanding, an expansive self-belief and effective means of dealing with symptoms, conflicts, work and relationship stress. His treatment is interactive and highly individualized. His specialty approaches include psychodynamic psychotherapy, interpersonal and relational therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, trauma treatment, co-occurring disorders, anger management, occupational counseling and hypnotherapy.
On how cyberbullying happens, Turco said “I have patients [who] come here and…sit across from me and read back a text that someone sent to them, a wife, a husband, a boss or someone they can’t stand and the dynamic there is that in the text message, you can essentially be very harsh, be very cruel, drop a bomb and not be accountable for it. It reminds me of someone dropping a bomb from 3000 feet up and not even being able to be seen afterwards because you are not there to confront that person.”
He says on the effects of cyberbullying “Some of these things can happen and what it can bring about online when people post adverse things or lies. You even hear people feeling very hurt when someone has ‘unfriended’ them on Facebook you know. That’s like a new term of “It’s a slap on your face. I’m just going to turn my back on you forever. I’m unfriending you quick. You are out of my life”. It’s another way of bullying in a sense of certainly of being hurtful.”
