Social Support: A Critical Factor in Women's Health and Health Promotion.
Hurdle, Donna E.
Health & Social Work, v26 n2 p72-79 May 2001
Social networks and social support are reported to be healthy activities, particularly for women. The support is credited with reducing morality rates, improving recovery from serious illness, and increasing use of preventive health practices. Health promotion with women is an underdeveloped area of social work practice that needs to be considered. Suggestions are offered on ways to incorporate this approach. (JDM)
