Cybertrauma: A theory and new area of research and development in Cyberpsychology.

I have my academic definition below (work in progress as technology advances)

What is Cybertrauma?

Any trauma that is a result of self- or, other-directed interaction with, mediated through, or from any electronic internet/cyberspace ready device or machine learning algorithm, that results in impact now or the future.

This event/interaction can be multi-modal, multi-platform and multi-interval, delayed or immediate, legal or not, singular or plural, and may include images, sound, touch and or text and may or may not be vitriolic in nature.

Events may include covert and overt typology and may be virtual and corporeal and/or at the same time.
