dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to investigate whether certain subtypes of withdrawn children show evidence of difficulties with social acceptance and negative feelings about their social situation. Additionally, differences between subtypes in terms of other social behaviors, such as aggression and prosocial behavior, were examined. Groups of each of three withdrawn subtypes, passive-withdrawn, active-isolate, and unsociable, were created based on peer nominations of withdrawn behavior, and were compared to one another and to a non-withdrawn control group. Results indicated that the active-isolate group showed evidence of poorer social acceptance and social adjustment, whereas the passive-withdrawn and unsociable groups did not differ from each other or the control group. Results demonstrate the need to determine subtypes of social withdrawal for both research and clinical purposes.
