Abstract

Fifty-six secondary school students with and without social emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBDs) completed self-report measures of their strengths and difficulties, self-concept and social identity, cognitive attributional style and participated in computer-based tests of risk-taking and impulsivity. Contrary to common understanding, the students with SEBDs made realistic
estimations of their difficulties and were as able to make attributions as their peers without SEBDs; though they tended to attribute negative events internally significantly more often than did students without SEBDs. No differences were found between the two groups in terms of risktaking as measured on a computer-based test. Implications of these findings for identification of
and working with students with SEBDs are considered
