The purpose of this project was to inform readers about the progression of cyber bullying into the military work center. This research has been compiled to aid the thesis topic for the capstone project in the Regis University Criminology program. The proposal relates the involvement of adults (any person over the age of 18) in the epidemic that is cyber bullying. A comprehensive literature review analysis was created on the current research available on cyber bullying in adolescents and the issues that exist within it. It was found that the majority of the research is still in the understanding of the topic both proactively and re-actively. It has been understood that the absorption of the Internet and the cyber world into the work center has brought the threat of cyber bullying. This research proposal will review literature that discusses what cyber bullying is, what it does to a work environment and why the issue is so serious. The methodology is then mapped out on how this research plans to be carried out. The author plans to review four research questions which are: How prevalent is cyber bullying in today's military? How does cyber bullying affect military members? What forms of cyber bullying affect military members the strongest? And what programs, if any, can be edited or created to combat the threat of cyber bulling in our work force? Content analysis will be used to see what differences exist or fail to exist. The collection method of using academic search engines is outlined in detail.
