SOCIAL SUPPORT RESOURCES, BEHAVIOR, AND APPRAISALS: A PATH ANALYSIS

Findings supported the following models: (a) Support network resources yield supportive behavior that in turn promotes positive appraisals of support, (b) orientation to support utilization effects resources, behavior, and appraisals, and (c) resources and behavior effect distress indirectly through support appraisals.
