The Social Support Function in Epilepsy Self-Help Groups.
Droge, David; And Others
Small Group Behavior, v17 n2 p139-63 May 1986
Results of a preliminary survey of epilepsy self-help group members are presented, and effects relating to stigmatization, reasons for participation, asserted curative factors, and formal-only versus informal participation in the self-help group process are examined. Societal reaction to people with epilepsy is viewed as a major contributor to problems associated with this disability. (Author/BL)
