Personal Relationships and Social Support Summary


Personal Relationships and Social Support by Edited by Steve Duck

Acknowledging that the support given by friends, intimates and other members of a social network is important to personal well-being, this study focuses on social support as a phenomenon embedded in the everyday transactions and dynamics of people's interpersonal relationships. The author considers such issues as the importance of daily social support, the strategies that people use to mobilize support within particular relational contexts, and the impact of people's daily life and work patterns on the need for support. The effect, in turn, of competence in support-giving on the development and maintenance of interpersonal relationships is examined, as are the possible negative consequences of particular types of support.
