PEER BULLYING AS A STRATEGY FOR ACHIEVING INDIVIDUAL GOALS IN THE LIGHT OF SOCIAL DOMINATION AND COERCIVE ACTIONS STUDIES

The aim of this paper is to analyze the strategic side of the peer bullying phenomenon. The starting point for considerations is the observation that more and more authors and researchers in this area come to the conclusion that the behaviours of bullies are clearly instrumental and planned. The text justifies the need for shifting emphasis in the overview of the phenomenon by focusing particularly on the issue of social dominance and the function of aggressive behaviours as well as a review of empirical study that provide (direct and indirect) evidence to support these assumptions. At the end, the concept of coercive actions developed by James T. Tedeschi and Richard B. Felson is mentioned, through which instrumental aggression occurring in bullying can be explained.
