Among the bad relations that may arise in social interactions is unjustified aggression and harassment.
The unjustified aggressiveness can be considered an antecedent of the bullying phenomenon, which could be prevented through appropriate educational programs. The objective of this study is to check if the intervention aimed at improving interpersonal relationships in play
activities promote both competence for learning and social development as the quality of interpersonal relationships, under the assumption that both skills are essential for the
prevention of unjustified aggression in preschool. The results seem to reflect some success in the quality of interpersonal relations that encourages and promotes this educational model.
