RAMOS-OLIVEIRA, Diana  and  SENRA, Luciana Xavier. Sociocognitive development, family and social support in adolescents: reflections for the understanding of school violence. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.1, pp. 21-36. ISSN 1677-2970.

Adolescence is a period of social, psychological and biological development with experiences, body and physiological transformations and more complex interpersonal relationships, including situations of violence in the school context. The changes in adolescents' thoughts about themselves and the social context they share are explicit because they select, interpret, evoke and use social and family information in the formation of concepts, judgments, emotional expressions and decision-making. This is a correlation study between school violence-SV and family and social supports in a sample of 1.178 students of both sexes between 12 and 17 years. Negative correlations were observed between SV victimization and family support (r=-0.37), in the factors that measure psychological outrage and moral damage; and, injury, threat and physical and sexual abuse (r=-0.27). This indicates maintenance the relationship and aggressive and/or fragile social interaction of the family context in the school environment. Intervention programs with emphasis on such indicators are suggested.
