SOLUTION OF SOCIAL CONFLICT SITUATIONS IN ROMA AND NON-ROMA CHILDREN
Languages of publication
Researched were strategies in problem solving of conflict situations in groups of 8-11-year-old Roma (N = 80) and non-Roma (N = 85) children and the frequency of occurrence of these strategies on the basis of ethnic group membership. A significant predictor of ethnic membership was helplessness in solving conflict situations (answer: I don't know) with a higher incidence in non-Roma children. However, the difference noted is based on a social rather than an ethnic principle of comparison (Roma children in the sample prevailingly came from Roma settlements) and suggests a distinct handicap in Roma children in the sphere of social competence and security.
