Evaluation of the Impact of Harmony-Meter as a Global Strategy to Reverse Bullying

Gabriela Flores Talavera

Abstract


Descriptive Pre-Post study with a single group intervention assesses the impact of the Harmony-meter as a global strategy of intervention to reduce violent behavior in school, improve the harmonic coexistence rates and promote the development of the socio-emotional skills of the members of a school community. The hypothesis is checked. It’s based on the assumption that “everything that focuses attention multiplies” therefore, if attention is focused on positive behaviors, then they will be promoted and multiplied, significantly reducing violence in school. That is, there is an inverse relationship proportional to greater positive behaviors less is the violent behavior in the school. The study was worked with 100% of students of a school with serious social problems of vulnerability, family disintegration, gang activity, drug sales and violent behavior among neighbors. Changes in behavior of the different actors are described, raising the quality of healthy coexistence; strengthening family ties, improving teacher-student relationships and converting violent behaviors into harmonic behaviors.
