Abstract

La inteligencia emocional es un constructo que se ha incorporado en los últimos años al campo de la psicología de la educación. No obstante, pocas investigaciones han abordado el tema en el marco de la dinámica social de las aulas escolares. Estudios previos ponen de manifiesto que el meta-conocimiento sobre las propias competencias emocionales, inteligencia emocional percibida (IEP), es un elemento diferencial entre los escolares que se implican o no en fenómenos de acoso escolar (bullying). El presente estudio trata de ir más allá y profundizar en lo que acontece cuando estos fenómenos de acoso están mediados por el uso de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (cyberbullying). La muestra estuvo formada por 5759 estudiantes adolescentes andaluces. Los resultados ponen de manifiesto que si bien la IEP discrimina el tipo de implicación en el acoso escolar, no ocurre lo mismo en el cyberbullying. Se discuten los resultados con relación a las posibles diferencias en gestión emocional entre los fenómenos de acoso escolar y cyberbullying.

The emotional intelligence construct has been introduced in recent years to the field of educational psychology. However, only a few researches have examined this topic in relation to social relationship dynamics in school contexts. Some previous studies have shown that meta-mood about one's own emotions, perceived emotional intelligence (PEI), can distinguish students involved in bullying from those not involved. Specifically, this study aims to look further into this issue by focusing on cyberbullying situations where bullying is mediated by the use of information and communication technologies. Participants were 5759 adolescent students from Andalucia (South of Spain). The results show that PEI can discriminate between the roles young people play in traditional bullying but not for cyberbullying. These results are discussed according to possible differences in emotional management across bullying and cyberbullying.
