Educators' Responses to Internalizing and Externalizing Symptomatology in Children: Implications for School Professionals
Sternlof, Steve; Pace, Terry M.; Beesley, Denise
Journal of School Counseling, v3 n9 2005
This study examined the relationship between educators' ratings (N = 182) of interpersonal attractiveness and rejection for children exhibiting internalizing and externalizing behaviors. Results revealed that internalizing behavior was perceived to be less interpersonally attractive but was not necessarily seen with greater levels of personal rejection. Externalizing behavior was perceived negatively on both interpersonal attractiveness and personal rejection measures. Ratings of personal rejection for externalizing behavior were greater than ratings of rejection for internalizing behavior. Implications as to the role of school counselors in providing specialized training, professional development, and consultation are addressed along with directions for future research.
