Bullying and Health
The Research Exchange Group on Bullying and Health was founded in September 2013. The group comprises researchers, faculty, educators, students, practitioners, and policy makers who gather monthly to discuss applied health research on issues related to bullying and health in Newfoundland and Labrador, whether focussed on the school system, the workplace, the post-secondary experience, health professional bullying or issues of leadership and restorative justice.
The goals of this group are
- to create research links;
- to identify funding opportunities and research gaps;
- to work towards developing greater overall capacity to conduct research on bullying and health; and
- to promote evidence to inform decisions about public policy on bullying and health in Newfoundland and Labrador
May 6, 2019 | 12:30pm NST: Dr. Brett Holfeld, Assistant Professor, Psychology, Grenfell Campus, Memorial University: My program of research addresses the impact of technology on the social and emotional development of children, adolescents, and young adults. More specifically, I am interested in the longitudinal effects of risk and protective factors (measured at both individual and contextual levels) on cyber bullying and victimization, and on behavioural and mental health problems. I am always willing to talk about my research and I am open to new ideas that could make for an interesting project.

- November 16, 2017: Anne Burke and Chelsey McPhee on "Digital Footprints: A Critical Inquiry Project Exploring the Online lives of Middle School Students" The increase in digital communications medium, including blogs, Facebook, Instagram, and personal webpages, has allowed for the digital world to become a lived space in and of itself. That is, it is an arena in which individuals exist—it has its own cultures and identities, and individuals must often comply with certain regulations and beliefs of an online community in order to engage with it. This project consisted of a case study of grade eight and nine students’ understanding of media, digital technologies, and communication, particularly what implications these subjects have on the students’ “real lives.” The grade eight and nine students alike reflected on the material discussed in class through online blogging amongst other members of their class/grade on the computer platform Schoology.
