Abstract

Social Support in connection with rehabilitation outcomes has been studied extensively in rehabilitation and the social sciences. However, the studies have yet to document clearly the strength of effect social support has on outcomes. This meta-analysis divided social support into three relevant categories; perceived satisfaction, perceived availability, and received social support. It was found that effect sizes for the three categories were .28, .32 and .21 respectively. Overall social support was found to have an effect size of .28 with rehabilitation outcomes. The evidence from theses analyses supports the three dimensions of social support and for the efficacy of social support on rehabilitation outcomes.
