Patchin discusses cyberbullying within sports teams


International cyberbully expert Dr. Justin Patchin, a professor of criminal justice at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, was quoted in a March 18 story in The Washington Post about the prevalence of cyberbullying within college sports. 

The article focuses on recent events involving a Maryland women's lacrosse team that resulted in the suspension of five players and the dismissal of a coach.

In the story, Patchin talks about how bullying within sports has moved from locker rooms to the cyber world as new generations of athletes use social media as a primary form of communication. He also notes that sports teams might be especially ripe for this kind of bullying because cyberbullying cases often feature characteristics of group dynamics such as one-upmanship, which are common within the world of sports teams.
