Communicating Social Support: Identifying Supportive Episodes in an HIV/AIDS Support Group.
Cawyer, Carol Stringer; Smith-Dupre, Athena
Communication Quarterly, v43 n3 p243-58 Sum 1995
Describes supportive episodes in an HIV/AIDS support group and the role of social support for group members. Finds that members used communication as a healing agent, as a preparatory mechanism for living with AIDS, as an outlet for expressing emotions, and as a means for changing society. Identifies feedback and self-disclosure as essential elements for communicating support. (SR)
