|Abstract||This study examined the effects of resilience and coping efficacy on perceived social support given to romantic partner caregivers of those with spinal cord injuries. This study also explored the influences of non-caregiver face-to-face and caregiver Facebook social supportiveness on caregiver well-being (stress, esteem, and health symptoms). First, this investigation explored differences in perceived support quality between via both support network types. Subsequently and relatedly, the investigation addressed the extent to which caregiver resilience and coping efficacy moderate the effect of support satisfaction on the well-being of the caregiver. In addition to clarifying the theoretical mechanism by which supportiveness may influence well-being, this research aims to offer practical guidance regarding how romantic partner caregivers of those with spinal cord injuries might most effectively receive supportive communication.|
