Sharkin, Bruce S.; Plageman, Paula M.; Mangold, Susan L.
Journal of College Student Development, v44 n5 p691-98 Sep-Oct 2003
Explores emotional peer helping, whereby students attempt to provide support, comfort, be understanding, and/or listen to the problems of their peers, particularly peers with who they feel close. Results suggest that many students may find themselves helping a peer with problems, yet most students chose not to contact the campus counseling service regarding their troubled peer.
