What Elementary Students Experience outside of the Classroom: Children's Responses to Social Exclusion
Chiffriller, Sheila H.; Kangos, Kelsey A.; Milone, Lisa
Journal of School Counseling, v13 n1 2015
Social exclusion and the behaviors, thoughts, and feelings it evokes in children were examined in the present study. Two forms of exclusion were identified: being rejected and being ignored. Surveys were administered to third and fifth grade students in a Northeastern suburb in the United States to see how children respond overall and if younger and older elementary school students respond similarly. The students were asked to imagine themselves in four different peer situations in which they were included, rejected, or ignored and indicate how they would respond. Developmental differences and implications of the findings for counselors are discussed.
