Communicating social support
Sage Publications, Jul 1, 1987 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 317 pages
Albrecht and Adelman address theoretical and methodological issues for understanding the social support process in everyday life. They contend that social support is inextricably linked to communication behaviour and that the logical and empirical link between the two is long overdue.
They present a theoretical overview (including strategies for measuring social support), examine support in specific settings and consider the dilemmas of supportive communication. They also discuss future directions for research and practice.
