Resumo

Bullying is a type of violence that manifests itself as unwanted and aggressive, intentional behavior among peers that is repeated over time. The Help Teams (EA’s) are groups of students prepared to offer strategies and solutions to the problems that afflict the daily coexistence of children and adolescents in schools. The present research is exploratory, quantitative in nature, and sought to compare the differences perceived in self-efficacy beliefs for helping in bullying situations among adolescents in schools that have implemented the EA's and those that do not. It also compared the self-efficacy beliefs to help between participants of EA's and non-participants. The study had 2,403 students distributed in two groups: 1,301 students from private schools that have the EA's and 1,102 students from schools that do not have such a proposal. The results show that the beliefs to help reached lower rates in schools that have the SAI implemented. This fact is due to the increased perception of the complexity of the phenomenon, which does not exist in schools that do not have the work developed.
