MORATTO VASQUEZ, Nadia Semenova; CARDENAS ZULUAGA, Natalia  and  BERBESI FERNANDEZ, Dedsy Yajaira. School Climate and Family Functionality as Associated Factors to Bullying in Students of Antioquia, Colombia. Pensam. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.1, pp.63-72. ISSN 1657-8961.

Objective. To determine the existing relationship between school climate and family functioning with school bullying in Antioquia Colombia. Method. A transverse study was carried out in the educational institutions of nine subregions of Antioquia - Colombia. The total sample was 2421 students in Antioquia between the 9 and 18 years old. The instruments used were the Scale of School Climate (SES), APGAR and CIE - A Short version. Results. The multivariate and binomial logistic regression analysis found that students who reported an inadequate school climate have four times more the risk of being intimidated or bullied at school, when compared to the students who reported a perception of an adequate school climate. Likewise, the students who identified inadequate school climates are three times more at risk of school intimidation on average. Also, the report of familiar dysfunction indicated an association with inadequate school climate. Conclusion. The close link between the perception of inadequate school climate and the emergence of bullying in the school context is evident; secondly, family functionality is established as a key to resolve the difficulties that are presented in the daily school environment.
