20 National Bullying Prevention Month Images

national-bullying-prevention-month-14

October is National Bullying Prevention Month in the United States. It is during this time of the year that America focuses on bullying and cyberbullying prevention. Bullying and cyberbullying are social problems that can cause serious physical and psychological harm to children and their loved ones. As of 2017, bullying and cyberbullying are still defined as pediatric problems involving minors.

Adult bullying, cyber harassment, internet trolling and workplace bullying are all similar terms used when adults are involved as either aggressor or target. Although this writer views bullying and cyberbullying applying to all ages, they will be presented as a pediatric phenomenon until consensus accepts them as being non-age related.

Stop Cyberbullying

With the advent of the Information Age, cyberbullying has become the predominant issue facing all facets of society. So, to help educate citizens of the Information Age, provided below are 20 free cyberbullying tactic images to download, share and edit.

Cyberbullying Defined

Cyberbullying is defined as recurrent and sustained verbal and/or physical attacks by one or more children towards another child using Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Like classic bullying, cyber bullying is harmful, repeated and hostile behavior intended to deprecate another child for reasons other than self-defense.

Cyberbullying involves threatening or disparaging communications delivered through ICT that can occur anonymously, publicly or by using felonious identities. Whereas classic bullying typically involves face-to-face interactions and non-digital forms of communication, online bullying consists of data exchanged via ICT and may never involve face-to-face meetings.

Cyberbullying is an abuse centered interpersonal dynamic that includes aggressors, targets and bystanders. The main developmental issues fueling cyber bullying are peer acceptance, recognition and occasionally retribution. Not all cyberbullying is fueled by dark developmental needs or perceptual distortions. There are instances when children cyberbully other children due to their ignorance or belief that they are joking.

“Not to say that pre-Information Age bullied children were not traumatized, but cyberbullied children are relentlessly tormented 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.”  Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D. (2014)

iPredator Definition

iPredator: A person, group or nation who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, coercion, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain.

iPredators can be any age or gender and are not bound by economic status, race, religion or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, coercive, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Central to the construct is the premise that Information Age criminals, deviants and the violently disturbed are psychopathological classifications new to humanity.

Cyberbullies Equal One iPredator Typology

Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, internet troll, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, cyber terrorist, online child pornography consumer or engaged in internet defamation or nefarious cyber deception, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

  • A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT.
  • The usage of ICT to obtain, tamper with, exchange and deliver harmful information.
  • A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology [ICT]. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available.

Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in the abstract and artificial electronic universe known as cyberspace. Therefore, as the internet naturally offers all ICT users anonymity, if they decide, iPredators actively design online profiles and diversionary tactics to remain undetected and untraceable.

iPredator Awareness Images

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.

You and I may not feel it, but we are all at the beginning of the Information Age. Like a double edged sword, the advantages and disadvantages of Information and Communications Technology are clear. If someone says to me again, “Dr. Nuccitelli, what do you want us to do, turn off the internet?”, I think I will throw my digital devices out the window. For the record, I love cyberspace and grateful for its many benefits. What I don’t understand is how little is being done to teach children and the rest of society about the dark side of cyberspace and the typologies of iPredator.

At times, it feels like society has buried its head in the sand in relationship to internet safety and cyber attack prevention. It is truly unfortunate that the vast majority of online users do not pay attention to information security and cyber attack prevention until they, their loved ones or wallet are cyber attacked. Not only do I think basic internet safety, Digital Citizenship and how to conduct oneself in cyberspace be taught in schools, but it should be a national priority. For now, the best we can do, for those of us who give a damn, is to encourage awareness.

To achieve this aim, pasted below are twenty images and quotes to help think about how to protect yourself, loved ones and business. All the images are free to download, share and edit for educational purposes. For most devices, simply right click on the image and click “save as” to download to your device. No personal information or email address is required to print out or save. I present you my novice graphic design skills and philosophical ramblings.

Michael Nuccitelli, Psy.D.-San Bernardino Mass Shooting

Listen to Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. as he is interviewed on America Now with Meghan McCain regarding the San Bernardino Mass Shooting on December 2, 2015. On December 3, 2015, Dr. Nuccitelli was interviewed by Meghan McCain during her three-hour national radio broadcast discussing the San Bernardino Shooting tragedy. As you will hear during this brief interview, Ms. McCain asks Dr. Nuccitelli provocative questions surrounding the husband and wife team who brutally murdered fourteen people and wounded twenty-one.

Although the assailant couple, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, pledged their allegiance to an Islamic State leader on Facebook, authorities were not prepared to conclude this travesty was a terrorist attack or workplace related at the time of this show. In response to Ms. McCain’s question regarding the ability of terrorist groups to use social media as an influential tactic for motivating other terrorists, Dr. Nuccitelli affirmed her query. Concurring with Ms. McCain, Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D. strongly suspects the San Bernardino Mass Shooting at the Inland Regional Center was an act of terrorism and not simply an act of workplace violence. Dr. Nuccitelli would like to say Thank you to America Now with Meghan McCain for inviting him to be their guest.

Dr. Nuccitelli presents his belief that cyberspace is becoming, or already is, an extension of cyberspace. He strongly believes that cyberspace has effects upon the human mind not yet explained by modern science. For those interested in learning a little about what Dr. Nuccitelli is referring to, it is recommended to Goggle the terms Reality-Virtuality Continuum, Disinhibition Effect and the works of Carl Jung. If the San Bernardino shooters were influenced by their online activities, Dr. Nuccitelli believes his two iPredator sub-constructs, iPredator Bridge and ODDOR were involved.

Since the beginning of human civilization, ideology has driven people to commit atrocious acts of violence. In the Information Age, the seeds of militant ideology are easily nourished. Once a person or group of people are validated in their extreme views, the probability of implementing their violent plans grows exponentially. For a yet to be determined reason, cyberspace has an uncanny ability to speak to the dark side of human consciousness. Living in the Information Age, Cyber Terrorism and iPredators will become permanent fixtures of the human experience. With each passing year, homeland security must focus on cyber attack prevention.

ODDOR

Offline Distress Dictates Online Response (ODDOR) is a sub-tenet of iPredator, which posits that offline psychological functioning directly influences one’s online interactions. Whether someone is an online assailant, cyber attack target or both, ODDOR does not discriminate. ODDOR postulates that temporary and long-standing psychological states can significantly taint an online user’s behaviors and interpretations. Perceptually isolated, ignorance of the existence of ODDOR and experiencing atypical affective and cognitive states increases the probability of being targeted by an online assailant. In addition to being at a greater risk of being cyber attacked, ODDOR influences an online user to partake in destructive and self-destructive online activities.

If a person is self-aware and reasonably healthy, their levels of ODDOR are less likely to become problematic. Just as self-awareness acts as a buffer between mental health and dysfunction, the same holds true for ODDOR. An online user’s risks of engaging in destructive and self-destructive behaviors are greatly diminished by monitoring one’s attitude before and during ICT usage. The ODDOR factors online users must be mindful of include

  • Using ICT in an altered state of consciousness.
  • Using ICT with an amplified sense of optimism or fatalism
  • Using ICT to explore deviant or dark internal fantasies.
  • Using ICT in a heightened state of distress, anger or carelessness.
  • Using ICT with a medical condition that impacts intellectual functioning.
  • Using ICT during affective states that are isolation or rejection themed.
  • Using ICT during interpersonal conflicts and environmental stress.

ODDOR has minimal impact when an online user is cognizant of how others can misinterpret their perceptual biases and color the information they aggregate, disseminate and exchange. ODDOR poses a minimal risk when an online user’s faculties responsible for self-preservation are functioning properly in all online environments.
