CASADO, Carla de Cassia Carvalho et al. The excluded ones: a case study about rejected partners in children's groups. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.3, n.1, pp. 12-22. ISSN 1983-8220.

Different studies demonstrate that there are significant differences in the behavior of socially rejected children. Therefore, the purpose of this article was to discuss social rejection, in children from 4 to 5 years of age, in a kindergarten group of a private school in the municipality of Belém, in the state of Pará. The methodology involved sociometric interview and behavioral observation. The behaviors were classified as Prosocial Behavior and Negative Behavior and were analyzed according to the level of sociability of each member of the group. The results showed that preferred children tend to present more negative behaviors than prosocial behaviors, but those behaviors are addressed to certain children of the group, emphasizing that social rejection is due to factors which are inherent to experienced relationships.
