Cyber bullying is increasingly common amongst children and adults. Examples of what constitutes online abuse are sending threatening or abusive text messages, creating and sharing embarrassing images or videos, 'trolling' - sending of menacing or upsetting messages on social networks, chat rooms or online games, setting up hate sites or groups about a particular child, encouraging young people to self-harm, voting for or against someone in an abusive poll, creating fake accounts, hijacking or stealing online = identities to embarrass a young person or cause trouble using their name, sending explicit messages, also known as sexting, pressuring children into sending sexual images or engaging in sexual conversations. These can take place online or through smartphones and tablets. Social networking sites, messaging apps, gaming sites and chat rooms such as Facebook, XBox Live, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat and other chat rooms can be great fun and a positive experience. But what do we do when things go wrong? How do we as legal practitioners help our clients to overcome?

Cyber bullying is rife on the internet. Most young and old will experience it or see it at some time.

In this session, Ms Wong Li Tein and Ms Carol Loi will share on the Protection from Harassment Act and its application in cyber safety, how to identify signs of cyber bullying in both adults and children, and how to manage the emotional upheavals that follows. This is a seminar for lawyers who are involved in cyber-harassment cases.
