A Closer Look at Social Support as a Moderator of Stress in Breast Cancer.
Roberts, Cleora S.; And Others
Health & Social Work, v19 n3 p157-64 Aug 1994
Explored effects of perceived social support from friends, family, and spouses on psychological adjustment of 135 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Initial data analyses revealed moderate correlations between greater psychological distress and lower levels of social support. When personality variable of social desirability was controlled for, relationships between social support and well-being were substantially weakened or eliminated. (Author/NB)
