Can dreams be broken by subtle violence? What if this violence was inherent in the human soul hidden since adolescence?
Aggressive behaviors represent an attempt to assert one's identity, to acquire a role and soothe personal insecurities. Among the aggressive behaviors, bullying represents a very widespread phenomenon, characterized by oppressive, intimidating and aggressive acts directed towards peers. The psychologist D. Olweus, highlights how bullying is characterized by: intentionality, asymmetry of power between bully and victim (strong-weak psychologically and/or physically), systematicity and persistence over time. Attacks can be direct or open (verbal and/or physical), indirect or disguised (through gossip, slander, social isolation).
A new form of bullying called “cyberbullying” has recently emerged, through the dissemination of material via the internet with PCs or mobile phones and encouraged by poor control and greater de-responsibility offered by the medium. Bullying is present in both girls and boys and is also on the rise in primary school. Both bullies and victims have difficulties in regulating and recognizing emotions.
If bullies persist in their attitudes and behaviors they risk structuring conduct disorders and subsequently antisocial personality disorders, while victims can experience depressive disorders and feel worthless. To prevent and reduce bullying, it is necessary to increase knowledge of the phenomenon within the school by promoting social skills among children.
