Next, based on your understanding of each article, answer the following questions that pertain to essential literature review elements:

Summarize the

claims

made by the authors of the existing research in the field regarding the topic you have chosen. (Make sure you explain the claims the authors made about their researched topic as well as the conclusions they reached).

Describe the specific

research designs

used in the presented research and explain

how these designs were used

to address the research topic. For example, what were the specific methods used to address their research questions? What types of research design(s) were used (be specific)? (make sure you briefly include the number of participants, their demographics (gender, age, and so forth if the article provides them), and briefly explain where and how the research was conducted (the procedure).

How did the

research designs

used by researchers help in conducting their research?

Do you think the research in each of the articles was conducted in an

ethical manner

? Why or why not?

What overall

conclusions

can be reached by you, based on your own review and presentation of these studies and references?

Two samples of how you should structure the information in your literature review are attached along with the rubric. Although the samples do not contain all of the information required for this milestone, it should give you an idea. Please follow the examples I have provided.

Research Question
Does cyber-bullying contribute to the mental health issues experienced by adolescents?

Interest in the Topic
Human development occurs in different stages of a person’s life. For many people, the
adolescence phase is where most formulate their identities and enjoy significant emotional,
social, physical, and cognitive development. It is a fun stage of life to be in. Technological
advancements such as social media have significantly altered societal life, making it easier for
people to communicate and conduct business, among many other things. Despite these benefits,
social media also has several downsides. One such downside is that it has created an
environment that tolerates and promotes cyber-bullying. Bullying is not a recent phenomenon,
considering it has been a part of human interaction. It often happens when they is a perceived
power imbalance between people or groups. The rise of social media has given this vice a new
medium. One of the main reasons cyber-bullying has taken root within social media is the
anonymity granted to users, which empowers and makes them feel comfortably bullying other
users.
Many adolescents are active social media users, with most operating multiple social
media accounts. This phenomenon increases the chances of adolescents becoming victims of
cyber-bullying. Cyberbullying denotes the posting or sending negative, false, or harmful content
about another person on digital platforms (Peebles, 2014). It can also include sharing private
information about another individual leading to humiliation and embarrassment (Peebles, 2014).
Disclosure of private, harmful, or damaging information can adversely affect the mental wellbeing of adolescents. It can lead to the emergence of mental health issues such as anxiety and
depression, considering many adolescents either opt for or are forced to endure the bullying by
themselves. Due to this, many turn to unhealthy and harmful coping habits to escape the
suffering, such as substance abuse and self-harm. Furthermore, their concentration in class
declines leading to poor performance and even discipline issues. Children are the future of any
nation, and, thus, anything threatening this future should be eradicated. Cyberbullying is
3
threatening the future of the country’s adolescents. This is the main reason I felt that researching
how cyber-bullying affects adolescents’ mental health should be the focus of my research project.
I hope the information from the research will not only highlight the extent of the problem but
also force policymakers and mental health practitioners to take active steps to deal with cyberbullying.

The study examined the prevalence of cyber-bullying and explored the psychological
attributes of adolescents who have experienced it. This article will not only help me establish the
prevalence of the habit but also formulate a profile of an adolescent who has experienced cyberbullying, which might help with early identification and provision of assistance.

Research Question
Does cyber-bullying contribute to the mental health issues experienced by adolescents?
Interest in the Topic
Human development occurs in different stages of a person’s life. For many people, the
adolescence phase is where most formulate their identities and enjoy significant emotional,
social, physical, and cognitive development. It is a fun stage of life to be in. Technological
advancements such as social media have significantly altered societal life, making it easier for
people to communicate and conduct business, among many other things. Despite these benefits,
social media also has several downsides. One such downside is that it has created an
environment that tolerates and promotes cyber-bullying. Bullying is not a recent phenomenon,
considering it has been a part of human interaction. It often happens when they is a perceived
power imbalance between people or groups. The rise of social media has given this vice a new
medium. One of the main reasons cyber-bullying has taken root within social media is the
anonymity granted to users, which empowers and makes them feel comfortably bullying other
users.
Many adolescents are active social media users, with most operating multiple social
media accounts. This phenomenon increases the chances of adolescents becoming victims of
cyber-bullying. Cyberbullying denotes the posting or sending negative, false, or harmful content
about another person on digital platforms (Peebles, 2014). It can also include sharing private
information about another individual leading to humiliation and embarrassment (Peebles, 2014).
Disclosure of private, harmful, or damaging information can adversely affect the mental wellbeing of adolescents. It can lead to the emergence of mental health issues such as anxiety and
depression, considering many adolescents either opt for or are forced to endure the bullying by
3
themselves. Due to this, many turn to unhealthy and harmful coping habits to escape the
suffering, such as substance abuse and self-harm. Furthermore, their concentration in class
declines leading to poor performance and even discipline issues. Children are the future of any
nation, and, thus, anything threatening this future should be eradicated. Cyberbullying is
threatening the future of the country’s adolescents. This is the main reason I felt that researching
how cyber-bullying affects adolescents’ mental health should be the focus of my research project.
I hope the information from the research will not only highlight the extent of the problem but
also force policymakers and mental health practitioners to take active steps to deal with cyberbullying.

potential variances by race and sex. This article will help demonstrate the link between cyberbullying and the mental health challenges experienced by adolescents in my research project. It
will also help establish how and why victims of cyber-bullying adopt violent tendencies.
