Measuring Adolescent Perceived Support Amidst War and Disaster
The Multi-Sector Social Support Inventory
Directing attention to the Bosnian experience, this chapter focuses on the critical area of adolescent-perceived social support during war and disaster. It details the theoretically-justified development of a new multi-sector measure of social support and provides a series of tests to determine its reliability and validity. It concludes with a series of recommendations on how future research in this area should be directed, with the hope that with a more fundamental understanding of youth and political violence, and particularly the role of social support, interventions can be more clearly targeted to need.
