Hardesty, Patrick H.; Richardson, George B.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v45 n3 p181-196 Jul 2012
The factor structure and concurrent validity of the Multidimensional Social Support Questionnaire, a brief measure of perceived social support for use with adolescents, was examined. Findings suggest that four dimensions of perceived social support may yield more information than assessments of the unitary construct of support. (Contains 8 tables and 1 figure.)
