Abstract

The purpose of this study is to test the association between lifetime cyber victimization, psychological distress, and online relationship quality. This study is testing a model that suggests online relationship quality is affected by the mediating effect of psychological distress from cyber victimization. Participants included 180 undergraduate psychology students from Eastern Kentucky University. This study will require participants to take a variety of surveys measuring cyber victimization, the anonymity of cyberbullying, psychological distress and relationship satisfaction. This study has practical implications for school psychologists and students to better understand how anonymous cyberbullying influences online relationship quality.
