The negative relationship between empathy and aggressive behaviour has been demonstrated in meta-analyses (e.g., Jolliffe & Farrington 2004). On the basis of these findings it was hypothesized that a lack of empathic responsiveness may also be a characteristic of cyber bullies. In the present study 2,070 students of Luxembourg secondary schools completed an online survey that included a German version of the Cyberbullying questionnaire (Smith et al. 2008) and a newly developed empathy scale. ANOVAs indicated significant differences between cyber bullies and non-cyber bullies. Most importantly, it was observed that cyber bullies demonstrated less empathic responsiveness than non-bullies. The findings confirm and substantially extend the research on the relationship between empathy and aggressive behaviour. From an educational point of view the findings suggest that training of empathy skills might be an important tool in decreasing cyberbullying. [less ▲]

Findings demonstrated that overweight adolescents are more likely to be both victims and perpetrators of violent acts (Janssen, et al., 2004). This study tested this weight-based victimization/perpetrator hypothesis. The study sample comprised N = 649 middle school students, which were regrouped in three weight categories (i.e. underweight, normal weight, overweight) according to the cut-offs proposed by the International Obesity Taskforce. In order to analyze group differences between the weight categories, three same sized groups (N = 75) were randomly created from the whole data set. Results confirmed that overweight students are more likely to be victimized but not to become perpetrators themselves compared to their peers. Logistic regressions showed that risk factor of being physically aggressed were being anxious (OR = 2.34), having low self-esteem (OR = 0.58), having a higher BMI (OR = 1.11) and being male (OR = 0.26). Results will be discussed with respect to psychosocial interventions. [less ▲]

Im Kontext eines Mediationsprozesses sind häufig emotionale Reaktionen der Beteiligten festzustellen. Insbesondere Ärgerreaktionen können auftreten und sich sowohl destruktiv als auch konstruktiv auf die Konfliktbearbeitung auswirken. Aufbauend auf einer Analyse der Funktionalität und Internationalität des Ärgers kann eine selbst- oder fremdgerichtete Ärgerregulation indiziert sein. Konkrete Möglichkeiten werden hierzu aufgezeigt.

Le terme «psychosocial» connaît un grand succès sans qu'il soit clairement conceptualisé. Il peut caractériser le déclencheur autant que le médiateur ou le résultat d'une interaction ou d'un développement, être cause ou effet d'un trouble. La psychologie écologique de Bronfenbrenner (1977) définie les relations existantes entre l'individu et la société par quatre sphères relationnelles emboîtées du centre vers la périphérie, parmi lesquelles il est possible de localiser le « psychosocial » et de la même façon d'en comprendre son développement. L'événement social devient « psychosocial » une fois perçu au niveau psychologique, et dans le cas où les ressources ne sont pas suffisantes pour y faire face, l'événement est susceptible de devenir un trouble psychosocial. Ainsi par exemple, sur le lieu de travail une confrontation régulière à des tensions non surmontables peut engendrer l'épuisement professionnel, encore appelé « burnout ». Une étude sur le burnout a été réalisée auprès d'un échantillon représentatif de 399 enseignants de l'enseignement secondaire au Luxembourg. Ils ont répondu à un questionnaire auto administré évaluant l'épuisement et les contraintes professionnelles, ainsi que les stratégies d'ajustement à la colère et les symptômes les accompagnant. Les résultats montrent que 3,3% des enseignants du secondaire souffrent d'un burnout élevé ayant un impact indéniable sur la santé. Un modèle d'équation structurale indique que les facteurs à risque pour la profession enseignante se retrouvent tant au niveau individuel (âge, fatigue, stratégies de gestion de la colère) qu'au niveau organisationnel (contraintes professionnelles) et qu'il est possible de tamponner l'effet de l'épuisement professionnel par la mise à distance face à la colère. Les résultats de cette recherche appellent à aller plus loin dans l'analyse, à améliorer la méthodologie et à mettre à l'épreuve l'efficacité des programmes de prévention existants ou à développer.

Based on definitions and theoretical models of physical violence at the workplace, this paper presents scientific knowledge and working hypotheses regarding both, the causes and effects of physical violence on health, and pertinent preventive measures of intervention to be taken by enterprises. Four groups of determinants of violence are presented and discussed: determinants relative to the structure and the culture of the enterprise; the aggressor; the victim; and the socio-cultural environment. The theoretical model by Baron and Neumann [Public Admin Q 21 (1998) 446–64] is used to explain the complex origin of violent behavior at work based on these determinants. Moreover, the various and multiple consequences of a violent act are examined. In addition to the direct effects of such an act on the social, organizational and individual level, the indirect effects are also taken into consideration. In this analytical context, health problems are more particularly underlined, such as the psychological trauma suffered by victims of a violent act. Finally, two different areas of intervention will be distinguished: interventions on the physical environment and interventions on the level of company management or an organizational group which aims at changing the behavior of the members of the organization. Different scientific evaluations of action programs to reduce violent acts are presented. In conclusion, this paper calls for further research on physical violence in the workplace. [less ▲]
