Bullying is a way of school violence that has been gaining ground on the news and causing concern to parents, educators and society as a whole. It is a phenomenon that has occurred repetitively for a long time, causing serious damage to the psyche of those involved. School Psychology needs intervene in the fight and prevention against bullying. We need adopt specific measures in each situation where it happens and take the phenomenon as something that encompasses the social, family, school and individual environment. Therefore, the presence of school psychologist in schools is of fundamental importance.
