Golden Gate Exhibit Hall
Anxious solitary (AS) and non-AS children’s behavior and peer responses were observed during recess play with familiar peers. AS children engaged in more solitary play and experienced more exclusion and less acceptance from peers. However, these peer responses operated in the context of different contingencies for AS and non-AS children.
