OLIVEIRA-MENEGOTTO, Lisiane Machado de; PASINI, Audri Inês  e  LEVANDOWSKI, Gabriel. School bullying in Brazil: a literature review of scientific articles. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.2, pp. 203-215. ISSN 1516-3687.

Bullying is a phenomenon which suggests acts of physical or verbal violence that occur repetitively and intentionally against one or more victims. The phenomenon began to be studied in Sweden in the 1970's. This study aimed to investigate scientific articles on school bullying published in Brazilian scientific journals up to the end of 2011. For this purpose, we performed a search using the term "bullying escolar" on SciELO and Google Scholar databases, finding 37 scientific articles published between 2009 and 2011. The literature review indicated that the phenomenon has become increasingly more prominent in scientific publications, arousing the interest of different knowledge areas, such as Psychopedagogy, Law, Physical Education, and Pedagogy, which developed studies based on different methods, objectives and focuses. However, up to the end of 2011, few articles were published with the aim of discussing the action of the psychologist.
