El presente estudio tiene como objetivo analizar la relación existente entre determinados factores familiares y escolares, la actitud del adolescente hacia la autoridad institucional y la conducta violenta en la escuela. La muestra se compone de 1.049 adolescentes de ambos sexos y edades comprendidas entre los 11 y los 16 años. Para el análisis de los datos se ha calculado un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales. Los resultados indican que existe una estrecha asociación entre la comunicación negativa con el padre y la conducta violenta en la adolescencia. Los datos también sugieren que las expectativas del profesor inciden en la actitud del alumno hacia la autoridad institucional, que a su vez se encuentra estrechamente vinculada con la conducta violenta en la escuela. Por último, encontramos una influencia indirecta del padre, la madre y el profesor en el comportamiento violento del hijo-alumno, fundamentalmente a través de su efecto en el autoconcepto familiar y escolar.

Family communication styles, attitude towards institutional authority and adolescents violent behaviour at school. The purpose of present study is to analyse the relationship among certain family and school factors, adolescents attitude towards institutional authority, and violent behaviour at school. The sample is composed of 1049 adolescents of both sexes and aged from 11 to 16 years old. Statistical analyses were carried out using structural equation modelling. Results indicate a close association between negative communication with father and violent behaviour in adolescence. Moreover, data suggest that teachers expectations affect students attitude towards institutional authority, which in turn is closely related to school violence. Finally, findings show an indirect influence of father, mother and teacher in adolescents violent behaviour, mainly through their effect on family- and school-self-concept.
