Jakub Hladik



Self-regulation is a capability to control or change person’s behaviour. It is mechanism which allows adaptation in social group and desirable social behaviour. Social rejection which students experience in their class is a contemporary problem. Self-regulation can play important role in social rejection of students. The aim of the research was to analyse group of social rejected students from the perspective of self-regulation mechanisms. 229 social rejected students of upper primary school were identified from the randomly selected sample (n = 1625) of upper primary school in the Czech Republic. Sociometric test, MEPS, Cognitive Emotional Regulation and ERQ scale and selfregulation failure questionnaire were research tools. Five groups of social rejected students depending on the 1) emotional regulation; 2) cognitive problem solving which refers to students’ level of self-regulation skills; 3) self-regulation failure and 4) level of social rejection in the class were identified via cluster analysis. Results show that group of social rejected students is not a monolithic block but it is internally divers group with very different subgroups of students.
