Intimate partners are a crucial source of support for survivors of traumatic injury, but partners may vary in the support they provide. When are partners most likely to provide support after a traumatic injury? To address this question, this chapter first reviews the consequences of traumatic injury and the role of social support in recovery. The second section summarizes existing models of social support provision, which highlight elements of the situation, relationship, recipient, and provider. The third section offers a critique of the existing literature, identifying limitations that prevent strong generalizations from previous work in other populations. The fourth section describes recent research that examines multiple predictors of support provision in a sample of trauma survivors and their partners. The final section explores the implications of studying couples that have experienced a trauma for understanding social support processes more generally.
