Vaux, Alan; Wood, JoAnna

Subjected three models involving social support, orientation to support utilization, and psychological distress to path analysis using data from 176 college students. Findings supported models that: (1) support network resources affect support appraisals indirectly through support behavior; (2) orientation to support utilization affects resources, behavior, and appraisals; and (3) resources and behavior influence distress indirectly through support appraisals.
