SAMPEN-DIAZ, María Nery; AGUILAR-RAMOS, María Carmen  y  TOJAR-HURTADO, Juan Carlos. Teaching Social Competence in Peru. A Bullying Prevention Program. REDIE [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.1, pp.46-57. ISSN 1607-4041.

This study on bullying, carried out in Peru, draws on a mixed research approach (qualitative and quantitative) to assess a prevention program based on social and interpersonal competence. The procedure includes a quasi-experimental design developed in two phases: 1) the analysis and detection of bullying situations, and 2) the design, implementation and assessment of the program. The study included 176 students from three educational institutions in Chiclayo, Peru. Data was collected through questionnaires, participant observation and assessment sheets. The results show that the program boosted social competence skills. After implementation of the program, students’ attitudes improved, showing better coexistence with peers, dialog, expression of feelings, understanding and empathy towards those who suffer, as well as friendship and solidarity in bullying situations. This highlights the importance of strengthening social competence skills.
