We aim to identify factors that might protect or mitigate against the negative impacts of harmful online experience (for example, cyberbullying, online sexual harassment). The goal of this work is to identify potential modifiable factors (for example, school environment, close friendships), that could be the target of support and preventative interventions. With the input of young people, using data driven approaches and via existing evidence based on prior research we will:

  1. Help identify the resilience factors and mechanisms that we will investigate in the data
  2. Review emergent findings and help understand the mechanisms
  3. Help determine acceptable and feasible interventions based on these findings
