他者依存性がソーシャル・サポートのストレス緩衝効果に及ぼす影響 <研究論文>

Influence of the dependent personality has on the stress buffering effect of social support <Research Article>
Tanaka, Kaori
Social support can be beneficial to both mental and physical health. However, recent studies have questioned the benefits of social support. The current study examined the role of dependent personality traits on the stress-buffering effect of social support in comparison to others' dependence. The following hypotheses were tested: First, when the support gap is large, dependent personality traits are high. In other words, the availability of support is not concerned with the level of one's dependent personality traits, but the same support for which it asks but, so that the dependent personality is high increases. Second, if a stressor considerably increases depressive symptoms, the social support gap also increases. Results did not find support for these aforementioned hypotheses.
