A Study of Negative Contagion among Students Labeled as Severely Emotionally Disturbed.
Brulle, Andrew R.; McIntyre, Thomas C.
Canadian Journal for Special Education, v1 n3 p86-90 Spr 1985
The extent of negative contagion (the modeling of inappropriate behaviors) among 15 high school severely emotionally disturbed students was explored. Through the use of naturalistic experimentation and a lag analysis, two behaviors (disruptive verbal and self-stimulation) were found to be contagious. One behavior (disruptive motor) was found to be possibly contagious. (Author/CL)
