Within the last decade, social support has become an increasingly popular research topic among professionals in the social sciences. Many empirical studies on social support appeared initially, only to be followed by a spate of theoretical articles attempting to make sense of the growing research literature. A need arose for an integrative overview of both theoretical and practical considerations expressing a consistent perspective on the many unresolved issues in the field. Social Support comprehensively evaluates research and theory from the perspective of both the scientist and human service provider.
