CORREIA, João et al. As relações entre pares de adolescentes socialmente retraídos. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2014, vol.32, n.4, pp.467-479. ISSN 0870-8231.

The present research aims to characterize the social relations of withdraw adolescents with their peer group and best friends. Data were collected based on three instruments: the Extended Class Play - which allows to capture the evaluations that peers make of the behavior, social functioning and social reputation of their colleagues -, the Friendship Nominations and the Friendship Quality Questionnaire - meant to access the perceptions that individuals have of various qualitative aspects of their best friendships. With regard to social relations, the results showed that socially withdrawn adolescents were described by their peers as being significantly more isolated, excluded and victimized, but also more prosocial than their colleagues. On the other hand, they did not differ in the number of mutual friends nor in the reported relationship’s quality, although they tended to have friends significantly more withdrawn and excluded, as well as less aggressive than the control group’s adolescents. The results are in agreement with the literature, reflecting on the social difficulties that withdrawn young people face, as well as the possible protective effect of a best friendship’s communion.
