Peers' Perceptions of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders: What Are Students Thinking?
Safran, Stephen P.
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, v3 n2 p66-75 Apr 1995
This article analyzes research on children's perceptions of emotional and behavioral difficulties. Virtually all studies concur that peers hold negative views of externalizing behavior problems. Findings suggest that professionals need to target peer-identified behavioral and social skill goals and develop programming aimed at normalization to improve acceptance in integrated settings.
