Patterns of Self-Disclosure across Social Support Networks: Elderly, Middle-Aged, and Young Adults.
Parker, Rhonda G.; Parrott, Roxanne
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v41 n4 p281-97 1995
Functions served by self-disclosure may vary depending upon the adults' gender and stage in the life span. Studies such issues in regard to the elderly, middle-aged, and young adults' use of four functions of self-disclosure: self-expression, self-clarification, social control, and social validation. Findings support the claim that greater intergenerational distance is related to less self-disclosure among members of a social network. (KW)
