Schonert-Reichl, Kimberly A.
Behavioral Disorders, v18 n3 p189-204 May 1993
This study compared scores on several indices of empathy and social competence in 39 adolescent males with behavioral disorders and 39 age-matched peers without behavioral disorders. The adolescents with behavioral disorders reported lower levels of empathy, participated in fewer extracurricular activities, had less frequent contacts with friends, and had lower quality relationships than peers did.
