Stop Online Bullies: The advantages and disadvantages of a standalone intervention

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


This chapter describes the development and content of “Stop Online Bullies,” a Dutch online tailored intervention for low-educated (cyber)bully victims, aimed to teach victims how to cope with cyberbullying and with the negative effects of cyberbullying. The theoretical insights and evidence-based methods, which are used in the intervention are described, as well as the tools used to reach these insights and to perform these methods. Since it was not possible to perform the planned randomized longitudinal control trial to investigate the effectiveness of the intervention, a process evaluation was conducted. The chapter provides the results of this process evaluation and ends with an overview of benefits and drawbacks of “Stop Online Bullies” and of online standalone interventions in general.
