To Prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources related to different types of victimization.
  • Consider and select one of the following pairs of victimizations:
    • Cyberstalking vs. Conventional Stalking
    • Online Harassment vs. Off-line Harassment
    • Cyberbullying vs. Face-to-Face Bullying
  • Select one of the following age groups: children, adolescents, adults, or older adults.
  • Search the Internet and the Walden library for at least 2 articles regarding the potential negative impacts each of your selected victimizations has on your selected age group.

By Day 4

Post a summary of the article(s) you found in your research. Compare the online versus off-line victimization from the pair you selected by responding to the following questions:

  • What is the difference in prevalence between the two?
  • What difference is there in terms of effects on the victim in each?
  • Are there different long-term implications for the victim between the two forms of victimization? What are those implications?

Use proper APA format and citations.
