"When Words Don't Come Easily": Personal Narratives from Adolescents Experiencing Shyness as an Emotional and Behavioural Problem in the School Context
Lund, Ingrid
British Journal of Special Education, v43 n4 p430-447 Dec 2016
The purpose of this article is to present narratives from 15 adolescents experiencing shy behaviour as an emotional and behavioural problem in the school context in light of narrative understanding. The investigation is intended to generate knowledge about this largely under-researched phenomenon based on the personal accounts of those who are actually experiencing it. Their narratives are the foundation for a discussion regarding implications for future practice in the context of school in relation to this group.
