Cyberbullying of vulnerable young people is a reality and an increasing concern among all Erasmus+ countries. Unlike standard-bullying that is more common at school, it can continue throughout the day through SMS, and apps, in social media, forums, or gaming where people can view, participate in, or share content. Cyberbullying includes sending, posting, or sharing negative, harmful, false, or damaging content about someone else. There is evidence that LGBTI+ groups are disproportionately affected by cyberbullying.

This Training Handbook has been developed as part of the Erasmus+ funded project Safe Internet Against Cyberbullying” (SIAC) coordinated by the Restorative Justice for All International Institute and delivered in partnership with Eurosud, Kairos Europe, Inercia Digital and Vismednet

It is addressed to educators/youth leaders, organisations and players around the phenomenon of cyberbullying related to LGBTIQ. It introduces cyberbullying related to LGBTIQ along with its forms, the concept of restorative justice and how to effectively prevent and intervene cyberbullying. It aims to provide professionals with tools in order to support young people form cyberbullying.

The Handbook is structured around 5 modules. Each Module is composed of 4-5 Units. A module involves 2-3 hours of learning. The programme is accredited with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) status by the RJ4All International Institute. It is supplemented by a CPD certified ecourse.
