  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: School bullying, social representations, teacher’s beliefs, education, school.

Few recent studies focus on educators’ beliefs about bullying. The present study examines, with a semi-structured interview, the beliefs of teachers and social workers on bullying and prevention strategies. The results obtained with the use of statistical software for textual analysis SPAD show in teachers the presence of a representation of bullying associated with families and outside the school. Social workers instead take into account the multiple life contexts of children and the need for preventive actions to be carried out within the community. There is an overall traditional view of bullying without spontaneous references to cyberbullying.
