Abstract

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.
