Crisis support and psychiatric symptomatology in adult survivors of the Jupiter cruise ship disaster (pages 63-73)

The aim of the present study was to explore the relationship between crisis support and psychiatric symptomatology among adult survivors in the year following the Jupiter cruise ship disaster. Evidence is presented that support decreases over the following year, and that higher levels of crisis support are strongly related to better psychological outcome. Crisis support is shown to retain its association with symptomatology even when satisfaction with support is partialled out. These data are discussed with reference to the debate over the relative importance of received vs. perceived support.
