Abstract [en]

This degree project is a systematic literature review. The aim of this study is to find out what the consequences can be for teachers who are being exposed to student-related violence in their workplace. This is because previous research has shown that there are knowledge gaps regarding this. Furthermore, the aim of this study is to find out whether the consequences for the teachers can vary depending on whether they are exposed to physical or psychological violence by students. The focus will be on teachers in the teaching grade between 1st grade in primary school and the last year of high school. In this systematic literature study, violence between students’ parents and teachers have been excluded. Both qualitative and quantitative studies have been included as a basis. Result showed that consequences for the teachers, which can follow from student-related violence against teachers, include emotional impact, impact on job performance, teacher turnover and reduced confidence in school management. Result also showed that teachers experience similar consequences regardless of whether they are exposed to physical or psychological violence. Future research should focus on the health economic impact in society regarding different consequences experienced by teachers who are exposed to student-related violence, and on both physical and psychological violence when developing better preventive measures.
