This study aimed to explore and conceptualize the impacts of cyberbullying victimization as perceived by 47 Korean male adolescents using a mixed-methods, concept mapping approach. Concept mapping revealed six major impacts of cyberbullying victimization among Korean male adolescents: internalized problems (M = 3.97), externalized problems (M = 3.51), school and peer problems (M = 3.92), online problems (M = 3.84), seeking social support (M = 4.17), and avoidance (M = 3.49). Based on the results, the conceptual framework presented herein can be utilized to plan and develop assessment and intervention approaches with male adolescents experiencing cyberbullying victimization.
