Eight subjects were observed during classroom activity
to determine the context of their social behavior. Four
subjects were internalizers and the other four were
externalizers. Subjects were observed at an inpatient
psychiatric facility for children. It was hypothesized
that externalizers would exhibit more off-task behaviors
and internalizers would engage in solitary play more
often. Results showed trends which supported the hypotheses.
Implications of medication effects, as well as further
research using a more molecular coding scheme were discussed.
