IZBICKI, Sarah; BRANDAO, Luiza Chagas; CARVALHO, Lígia Mosolino de  e  MELO, Márcia Helena da Silva. Peer rejection - dialogue with the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.2, pp.764-783. ISSN 1808-4281.

Peer rejection is a sociometric category that reveals a low preference among the peer group. To this category belong children that receive a lot of negative nominations and a few positive ones from their peers, when compared with the group average. Besides being a common problem at childhood and relatively stable over time, and also being related to juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, scholar evasion and depression, it is a theme not very studied in Brazil. This article´s objective was to underline some rejection's important characteristics described at PSI the literature, relating this sociometric status with peer friendship, social abilities and teacher's role in this context. The movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower was used to exemplify and dialogue with the described aspects. Using the movie as a motivational and didactic resource, the objective was to enhance the visibility of this subject both in the academic field and in the group of people responsible for child development.

Palavras-chave : peer rejection; friendship; aggressive behavior; social skills; teacher student interaction.
