MAGALHAES, Karin Cristina de Souza Moraes  and  SANTOS, Sheila Daniela Medeiros dos. Expressions of violence in the school: paradoxical relations in Brazilian scientific publications. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp. 161-179. ISSN 1808-4281.

This research aims to examine how the expressions of violence in the school context are problematized by major national academic and scientific publications today. To carry out this study of markedly theoretical nature, we performed a bibliographic survey of the main theoretical productions in the period between 2000-2013: books contained in the database of the National Library of Rio de Janeiro, a depository of bibliographic and documentary heritage of Brazil, and scientific articles published in journals in the fields of Education and Psychology. The studies were conducted based on Cultural-historical Psychology (Vigotski, 1997, 2004) and they pointed to the fact that expressions of violence in school relate to concrete mediating elements of the culture established by the conscious activity of men. The conclusion states that a plausible way to minimize violence in education points to an emphasis on participatory practices in the relationship between school and community, the realization of citizenship and the recognition of human dignity.

Keywords : cultural-historical psychology; violence; school.
