A Proposal for a Teacher Training Curriculum on School Violence and Violence in Schools

In the first part of this study, the question of school violence is examined, whether it is violence that occurs at school as a result of external pressures (cultural, social, and familiar) or violence that occurs within the school’s organisational structures (institutional violence), and is then reflected in all those involved in the school. When it comes to explaining violence, it can be explained by individual, psychological, and behavioural characteristics, as well as familiar and social elements, and the interaction of each of these aspects. Nonetheless, because school violence is unlikely to go away anytime soon, it is critical that teachers-in-training be prepared in advance to deal with various levels of violence. To this end, a specific subject titled Violence in School: Educating to Intervene, Intervening to Prevent was created for teachers-in-training of Infant and Primary School. In the second half of the article, three instructors from the University of Aveiro’s Educational Department (Portugal) describe how, as part of the European Project NOVAS RES, they developed a curriculum for reducing school violence. We hope that our curriculum will inspire other institutions to provide future teachers-in-training with the resources they will need to deal with violence.
