Dr. Patchin is the author of six books and numerous academic and professional articles. His first book "The Family Context of Childhood Delinquency" explores the role of parenting in the prevention and intervention of serious delinquent behaviors of children. Since 2002, his research has focused on adolescent behavior online. His second book "Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying" (co-authored with Sameer Hinduja), examines the ways adolescents use technology to cause harm to their peers (and what adults can do about it). It was named Educator Book of the Year by ForeWord Reviews. His third book, also edited with Sameer Hinduja, "Cyberbullying Prevention and Response: Expert Perspectives" includes strategies by leading cyberbullying and Internet safety experts from across the United States. His fourth book, "School Climate 2.0: Preventing Cyberbullying and Sexting One Classroom at a Time" describes the school's role in preventing problematic online behaviors of adolescents. "Words Wound: Delete Cyberbullying and Make Kindness Go Viral," the first book written for a teen audience, was published in December, 2013. An updated and expanded edition of "Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard" was released in October of 2014.

Dr. Patchin has appeared on NPR, BBC, CNN and in the New York Times and has presented at the White House. He regularly travels throughout the United States and abroad training parents, educators, law enforcement officers, and teens themselves about how to use technology safely and responsibly.
