DELGADO, Ana Claudia. Aggressive actions in the school environment: subjective sense. Psicol. caribe [online]. 2010, n.25, pp. 202-245. ISSN 0123-417X.
The study was proposed to understand the subjective universe of children who develop aggressive actions toward peers at school. Two five-year old children were observed in a middle socio-economic school in Cali, using a qualitative method. There were six individual sessions with different clinical instruments: playing, drawing and interviews. It was found that the children present severe difficulties in the construction of the basis of identity; therefore the definition of the boundaries of the other is insufficient, and all this is accompanied by the feeling of a deep threat of the self - conservation. As a result, the children create the aggressive actions as a protection resource and as the principal form of relationship with the other.
