Seriously Emotionally Disturbed or Socially Maladjusted? A Critique of Interpretations.
Weinberg, Lois A.; Weinberg, Carl
Behavioral Disorders, v15 n3 p149-58 May 1990
The article critiques interpretations purporting to distinguish between serious emotional disturbance (SED) and social maladjustment (which is excluded from the federal SED definition). An interpretation of social maladjustment based on social deviance is proposed to more clearly determine eligibility for services under provisions for the seriously emotionally disturbed. (Author/DB)
