SILVA, Jorge Luiz da et al. Results from Interventions Addressing Social Skills to Reduce School Bullying: A Systematic Review with Meta-Analysis. Trends Psychol. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.1, pp.509-522. ISSN 2358-1883.

Bullying, a public health problem, affects social relationships, school performance and students' health. The objective of this literature review was to verify whether interventions addressing social skills reduce victimization and/or aggression resulting from bullying. The following databases were consulted: LILACS, PsycINFO, Scielo, SCOPUS and Web of Science. The random-effects model and DerSimonian-Laird method were used. Six studies that met the inclusion criteria were selected, the methodological quality of which was assessed using the Downs and Black scale. Results indicated that interventions addressing social skills reduced bullying and victimization, however, at non-significant levels. Interventions addressing social skills may be more effective if developed together with other types of intervention which may include a wide range of situations, contexts, as well as the different individuals involved in the bullying incident, such as school staff and family.
