Journal of Family Issues, v19 n2 p181-203 Mar 1998
Widowed and divorced women were studied to test a counteractive model of stress, social support, and distress. Stress following the loss of a spouse led to social and psychological distress the following year; however, mixed effects were found for various conditions of support. Results and future research are discussed. (EMK)
