PORIG Webinar: Social Support


Psychology of Relationships Interest Group


The APS-PORIG Webinar Series Presents...

Professor Carolyn Cutrona Talks about Optimising Social Support in the Natural Network

 Wednesday July 2, 2014
9:00am to 10:00am AEST

Social support is one of the most widely investigated aspects of relationships. As a result, numerous interventions have been developed and trialled to determine how best to provide social support to individuals in need. In this webinar, a set of interventions will be described that attempt to increase the flow of social support to stressed individuals. These interventions do not introduce new persons into stressed individuals’ lives, but rather facilitate the flow of support resources to stressed individuals from the people who already have a place in their lives.  The assumption underlying these interventions is that sometimes needed support resources exist in peoples’ social networks, but that their quality, frequency, appropriateness, predictability and coordination can be improved to the benefit of the stressed individual.
