Abstract: Based on an apparent increase of bullying cases among primary school students in the city of Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, México, research was conducted to identify the characteristics of the various forms of violence and abuse among children of this age group. The results of this research aided school authorities in implementing a prevention program that increased student awareness of bullying and encouraged them to denounce it in hopes of reducing this phenomenon. The subjects studied in the described research, were 117 fifth-grade boys and girls between the ages of ten and eleven. Subjects were observed to identify the different roles of this phenomenon such as bullies, victims, and bystanders, as well as the cause and effects of their behavior. Additionally, focus group activities were conducted to measure the subjects’ awareness of the bullying phenomenon and sensitize them to it. In this study, both qualitative and quantitative methods were used to gather information about how the students experience this kind of violence between themselves. The instruments used for the qualitative phase were surveys, focus groups and individual interviews, which were digitized and analyzed using ATLAS.ti. The primary documents added to ATLAS.ti consisted of transcripts, video recordings and the survey data as individual documents per case.
