Addresses the topic of cross-cultural differences in college students' use of social support. Israeli and Chinese students rated the importance and availability of various support functions and noted whom they turn to when faced with different problems. Findings show that while both Israelis and Chinese students view the various functions of social support as important, they utilize support differently. (Contains 69 references and 6 tables.) (GCP)
