Horwitz, Allan V.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p623-32 Aug 1993
Tested hypothesis, derived from serial model of social support, that adult siblings will provide more support to their seriously mentally ill siblings when parents are not available. Data from 108 siblings of mentally ill persons revealed that siblings provided more contact, intimacy, and help when their parents were not living. (Author/NB)
