School violence and bullying  is a multidimensional social phenomenon with worrying dimensions and harmful effects on the child's psycho-emotional development and learning process. The purpose of this course is to examine some fundamental conceptual and theoretical issues concerning the phenomenon of school violence and intimidation.

Η ενδοσχολική βία τα τελευταία χρόνια λαμβάνει μεγάλες διαστάσεις και στα ελληνικά σχολεία. Μία από τις αποτελεσματικότερες πρακτικές αντιμετώπισής της είναι η «Σχολική Διαμεσολάβηση». Πρόκειται για μία διαδικασία κατά την οποία μαθήτριες και μαθητές, αφού εκπαιδευτούν από καθηγήτριες, καθηγητές τους που έχουν ασχοληθεί και επιμορφωθεί σχετικά με αυτό το θέμα, διαμεσολαβούν σε μαθητικές συγκρούσεις. 

Η σχολική διαμεσολάβηση έχει θεαματικά αποτελέσματα ως προς την μείωση της ενδοσχολικής βίας , την ένταση, τη συχνότητα και τη διάρκειά της, επειδή παρέχει ΧΩΡΟ ΚΑΙ ΧΡΟΝΟ στα παιδιά να μιλήσουν και κυρίως να ακουστούν.

Traditionally, adolescents in many cultures were not given any information on sexual matters, with the discussion of these issues being considered taboo. Such instruction, as was given, was traditionally left to a child's parents, and often this was put off until just before a child's marriage. The progressive education movement of the late 19th century, however, led to the introduction of "social hygiene" in North American school curricula and the advent of school-based sex education.

From the results of the survey conducted in 2013 and 2014 for students of the three grades of the Lyceums of Cyclades Prefecture, with a sample of approximately 2,300 students, (following the approval of the Ministry of Education and Science), the extremely low level of knowledge and awareness of the students was revealed for:

1.The HPV virus

2.The severity of its complications

3. Their vulnerability to the virus

4.The ways through which it is transmitted

5.Precautions from its transmission

6.The role of the vaccine as a protection measure at primary prevention level

7. The role of the Papanikolaou test as a secondary prevention protection measure

8.Safe sex.

With this in mind, we have created a web-based intervention aimed at educators, health professionals and parents, which aims to put a small but very substantial stumbling block to informing and raising awareness of the issue of cervical cancer and more generally of Intercultural Relations, for discussion in schools, health services and the community.
