Abstract

School bullying has been studied for about 40 years and a lot of knowledge has already been gathered regarding its nature, dynamics, predictors, and outcomes. It is already known that bullying is a very damaging type of violence which consists of some students deliberately attacking and hurting others who are unable to defend themselves. These aggressive behaviors are frequent and occur on a long-term basis. It is not only a dyadic interaction, but rather a social phenomenon with well-established roles.
