NUNES, Sandra Adriana Neves; FARACO, Ana Maria  and  VIEIRA, Mauro Luís. Correlates and consequences of social withdrawal in childhood. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.1, pp. 122-138. ISSN 1809-5267.

Social withdrawal in childhood is a challenge for child development research and clinic due to its implications for child psychological well-being and psychosocial development. The goal of this article is to present a synthesis of the scientific literature on the subject based on a systematic review of national and international databases.It is expected that this work will add one step forward in the theoretical support for empirical research on the understanding of the complex interwoven factors that lead the first signs of inhibited behavior to evolve into shy and social withdrawal during childhood and, eventually, culminate in internalizing problems during adolescence.

Keywords : solitude; social withdrawal; socioemotional adjustment; internalizing problems.
