CHOP researchers found that adolescents who are cyberbullied are more likely to report suicidal thoughts and attempts.

Dr. Waasdorp’s research focuses on translating child development theory and literature into prevention and intervention programming as well as examining the efficacy of school-based programming. Her programs aim to reduce bullying and aggression, improve children’s social and emotional skills, and help adults promote children’s positive peer relationships. She also has a strong focus on research methodology and related statistics.
