Stein, Stephanie; Merrell, Kenneth W.
Psychology in the Schools, v29 n4 p320-31 Oct 1992
Investigated factors considered by 118 school psychologists, 119 principals, and 108 special education teachers in making distinction between students with serious emotional disturbance and those with social maladjustment. Found moderate disagreement between groups on behavioral or background descriptors differentiating emotionally disturbed and socially maladjusted students, especially in regard to diagnosis of conduct disorder.
