1. Buitenhuis, R. Hoe kijken Nederlandse ouderen aan tegen de dood? De relatie tussen Waargenomen en Ontvangen sociale steun en doodsattituden.

Degree: 2015, Universiteit Utrecht

Previous studies concerning death attitudes in relation to social support point towards an increase in death acceptance and a decrease in death anxiety when an increase in social support is found. The present study investigates death attitudes of Dutch elderly and the influence of perceived and received social support on these attitudes, an important distinction within social support not made before in this kind of research. Based on previous studies and research pointing to the importance of perceived over received social support on health, two hypotheses have been formulated. The first hypothesis states that a high degree of social support would be related to a low degree of death anxiety and a high degree of death acceptance. The second hypothesis states that this relationship would be more substantial for perceived than for received social support. Gender differences in this relationship will also be investigated. As elderly lose friends of old age, less value may be attached to life, possibly decreasing death anxiety. For women, social contacts are usually more important than they are for men, but losing a partner is more deleterious for men. It is predicted that the amount of deaths, except for the partner, is related to less death anxiety for women than for men. Losing a partner is related to less death anxiety for men than for women. Among women, death of a partner will be related to less death anxiety when they have also lost many social contacts in comparison to having lost few social contacts. To investigate these hypotheses, a total of 288 participants, aged 65 to 98 have participated in an interview. No support for the three hypotheses was found. Results showed no differences in degree of death acceptance and anxiety, in relation to a high or low degree of perceived and received social support. There also appear no differences in death anxiety between men and women, regardless of having lost their partner and/or social contacts. Perhaps the certainty of dying, especially at old age, renders the amount of social support relatively unimportant in its influence on people’s death attitudes. The absence of a relationship between having lost a partner, social contacts and gender may be caused by other factors in life people still feel worth living for, so that death attitudes are not affected. Implications will be further discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Schut, H. A. W..

2. Balliet, Wendy. Understanding Posttraumatic Growth Among Individuals with Cancer: The Role of Social Support and Unsupportive Interactions.

Degree: PhD, Counseling Psychology, 2010, Virginia Commonwealth University

The experience of being diagnosed with and treated for cancer is an extremely stressful experience for most individuals. Historically, the literature on stress and coping has focused on negative outcomes, such as depression and anxiety, in relation to one‘s experience with cancer. Under-represented in the literature has been a theoretical framework that examines positive and transformative experiences that may occur throughout the cancer experience. The current study assessed interpersonal variables that rarely have been investigated in relation to one‘s experience with cancer (i.e., received social support and unsupportive interactions) and their association with depressive symptoms, positive emotion, and posttraumatic growth in a sample of men and women recently diagnosed with cancer. The main research design was cross-sectional (although longitudinal analyses were conducted on an exploratory basis), and self-report data were collected from 60 participants who had been diagnosed with cancer on average 5.68 months prior to data collection. Contrary to hypotheses, hierarchical regression equations indicated that received social support was not related to any of the outcome variables. However, unsupportive responses from a main support person were found to be significantly and positively related to participants‘ reports of depressive symptoms and posttraumatic growth within the context of their cancer experience. A major contribution of the present study is that it called attention to the importance of studying unsupportive interactions separately from social support. Moreover, this is the first study to investigate the relationship between unsupportive interactions and posttraumatic growth in a sample of recently diagnosed cancer patients. Findings were surprising in that the more unsupportive responses individuals with cancer received from a main support person, the more personal growth they reported. The results from the present study have important research and clinical implications for understanding the relationship between unsupportive interactions and posttraumatic growth among men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer.

3. Berglund, Emma. Personer med Multipel Skleros upplevelser av att leva med sjukdomen, samt deras upplevelser av stöd och bemötande från vårdgivare : En intervjustudie.

Degree: Health and Caring Sciences, 2013, University of Gävle

The aim of the study was to describe what it's like to live with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and experiences of social support and being received and met by health personnel. The method was a qualitative interview study of descriptive design and was analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Three women and two men (26-75 years) with MS from two municipalitiesin central Sweden participated in the study. The main results showed that the participants felt the disease limited everyday life. The majority described feelings of injustice being affectedby the illness, but they now have a new perspective on life. Participants described lack of information and communication from health personnel. All felt there is a long wait to get appointments in specialist care and says it depends on too few staff. Participants felt that being received and met by health personnel have been good, some describes that lack of time and staff may influence the response from health personnel negatively. The conclusion was that the participants daily life was limited by the disease in various extent and could lead to strong feelings. Several felt they learned to live with the disease because of a positive attitude and persistence. Participants felt it was important to get information, rehabilitation, and that health personnel listened. However, the participants experienced long wait to get access to specialist care, and that the main support they got from there was through telephone contact.
