Ontoereikende sosiale waarneming, sosiale vaardigheidsgebreke en gedragsprobleme by kinders met minimale breindisfunksie

M.A. (Psychology) / The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between social competence and the recognition of emotional expressions in children with minimal brain dysfunction. For this purpose a scale that assessed recognition of emotional expressions. was constructed and validated. Subsequently a group of 26 children with minimal brain dysfunction that satisfied certain selection criteria were selected as an experimental group and were paired off with a group of normal children. The groups were thereafter compared with each other in respect of social competence and recognition of emotions. Results revealed that children with minimal brain dysfunction made significantly more errors in the recognition of emotional expressions and that behavioural predispositions or traits such as aggression, assertiveness, and submission differed significantly between normal children and those with minimal brain dysfunction.
