Understanding Social Connectedness in College Women and Men.
Lee, Richard M.; Robbins, Steven B.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v78 n4 p484-91 Fall 2000
Undergraduate students (N=387) were participants in a study examining gender differences in social connectedness. Results show that for women, relationships that emphasized reliable alliance and not guidance contributed to social connectedness. For men, relationships that emphasized reassurance of worth but not reliable alliance or opportunity for nurturance contributed to social connectedness. (Author/MKA)
