SENRA, Luciana Xavier; LOURENCO, Lélio Moura  and  PEREIRA, Beatriz Oliveira. Characteristics of the relationship between domestic violence and bullying: a systematic review of the literature. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.4, n.2, pp. 297-309. ISSN 1983-8220.

Bullying involves intentional and repeated aggressive, physical or psychological behavior, among peers, aiming to undermine those considered weak and helpless. With no apparent motivation, it is related to the different kinds of family and community experience, including domestic violence (DV). DV affects world population by an action or omission which is detrimental to freedom, welfare and individual development (physical/psychological). A bibliometric survey was conducted by electronic search with the keywords bullying domestic violence or violence bullying between 2005 and 2010 at the databases Web of Science, Medline, PsycInfo, Dialnet and Redalyc, addressing the relationship between DV-bullying. The author, the journal, the year, the title, the design, and the implications of this relationship were taken into account. Forty-five articles were selected. The results revealed 2007 and 2010 as the years of greater productivity, U.S. (21) and Spain (13) as the most productive countries, that 35.56% of the articles mentioned the victim of DV as the victim-aggressor of bullying, and that the association of DV-bullying causes physical, psychological, behavioral and social problems in children and adolescents.
