GOMEZ, A. et al. Bullying an other forms of adolescent violence. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2007, n.48-49, pp.165-177. ISSN 1135-7606.
In this article, we try to analyze adolescent violence, focusing mainly on the school environment. In the first place, we have determined the concepts of aggressiveness, violence, bullying and other related topics. Next, we have reviewed and compared some of the most outstanding research concerning the incidence and prevalence of bullying. Then we reflect upon the causes and circumstances that elicit and sustain these kinds of behavior. Finally, we suggest some means of action from different social organizations that work toward prevention.
