Abstract

Abusive behaviour among school peers is a global issue that is present irrespective of culture, country, socio-economic level or kind of educational centre, and Costa Rica is no exception to this reality. This chapter seeks to identify risky behaviours that lead to bullying, and describes the main characteristics of the victims chosen by the aggressors, who perceive their victims as shameful and fragile persons. Also discussed is how the victims are affected in the short and long term.
