9780275928117: Social Support: Theory, Research, and Intervention

Within the last decade, social support has become an increasingly popular research topic among professionals in the social sciences. Many empirical studies on social support appeared initially, only to be followed by a spate of theoretical articles attempting to make sense of the growing research literature. A need arose for an integrative overview of both theoretical and practical considerations expressing a consistent perspective on the many unresolved issues in the field. Social Support comprehensively evaluates research and theory from the perspective of both the scientist and human service provider.

About the Author:

ALAN VAUX is Associate Professor of Psychology at Southern Illinois University.

Review:

"Vaux's book evolved from a need for an integrative overview that expressed a consistent perspective in the many complexities and unresolved issues of social support.' It includes an excellent review of current research and theory from psychologists, social psychologists, human ecologists, and social epidemiologists. It does provide an integrative model of social support viewed as a metaconcept that permits theorists, researchers, and helpers to use findings and observations from many perspectives. . . . His work, will be of substantial value to the professional helper who is concerned with developing theoretical clarity and empirical integrity because of its emphasis on social networks; use of existing support systems; and work with self-help groups. Graduate level."-Choice
