Abstract

The objective was to verify if students aged between 11 and 18 years had any involvement in situations of violence (bullying) and to evaluate the existence of a tendency to justify acts of aggression, through the mechanisms of moral disengagement. For that, a study was carried out with 430 students from two public schools in Belém - PA. Two instruments were used, one to characterize the sample and to investigate situations of bullying; and the other to analyze the mechanisms of the construct. Of the main results obtained, it was observed that more than 37% of the sample was already involved in bullying situations and 46% reported that they did not feel safe in the school environment. On the other hand, it was noticed that in all the mechanisms there was tendency of the students to justify aggressive acts. Given the results, it is concluded that the practice of bullying is a reality in the schools studied and that there is a tendency of students to justify aggressive behavior.
