Abstract:

The aim of
this study was to test an intervention program to improve school coexistence in Secondary
Education. The intervention program consisted of ten units for the training of students in
conflict resolution. It was applied to classroom groups of first cycle of Compulsory
Secondary Education, second cycle of Compulsory Secondary Education and Baccalaureate
of an IES by their teachers in tutoring schedule. The implementation of these units was
accompanied by the use of this material by tutors to manage everyday school conflicts
in a negotiated or mediated way. It was also accompanied by regular monitoring meetings.
The students? perceived level of violence in the experimental classrooms was compared
with the perceived level in the classrooms where intervention program was not applied.
The results show that intervention was more effective in the first cycle of Compulsory
Secondary Education and Baccalaureate than in second cycle of Compulsory Secondary
Education. They also show a greater impact on violence committed by the students than
on violence committed by teachers. The influence of experimental mortality on the results
is discussed.

Key words:

school violence, conflict resolution, secondary education.
