PICADO, Juliana da Rocha  e  ROSE, Tânia Maria Santana de. A long term study of preschoolers with aggressive behavior: School adjustment and teacher-student relationship. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.1, pp. 132-145. ISSN 1414-9893.

The objectives of this paper were: 1) check behavior problems and school performance of 11 students in the end of preschool that presented high rates of aggressive behavior in the beginning of this phase; 2) evaluate the quality of the teacher-student relationships. Instruments: teacher’s report form - TrF, academic skills and adaptation interview and teacher’s relationship interview. The results show that 63.5% of preschoolers have one to four externalizing and/or internalizing problems. The high rates of aggressive behavior remain in 45% of the students. Only 2 out of 11 teachers presented the positive elements proposed in the interview. Most of these children are exposed to risk factors, and it doesn’t seem they have enough protective factors to minimize these effects. possible aggressive pathways to be followed by these children are discussed as actions that could change this situation.
