Psychology Today Discusses Antonucci’s Social Convoy Model

Psychology Today discusses Toni Antonucci’s social convoy model – a way to measure people’s close social networks over time – and how the study of social relations, considered lightweight and irrelevant at the beginning of Antonucci’s career, has grown in importance in the years since she developed the model.

The article, Why You Need a Social Convoy, is published in the Brain Waves blog.
