Previous research has shown a positive association between optimism and perceived so-cial support. In this research the authors sought to uncover conditions and mechanisms that could influence this relationship; the authors were specifically interested in how these issues affect peer support in university-age women, for whom it is particularly important. The au-thors made three principal findings: (1) that perceived peer support is high when optimism towards peer support is high; perceived peer support is lowest when the value placed on negative events is high but optimism is low; (2) that participants’ tendencies to disclose their troubles could also be explained by the above pattern; and (3) that disclosure mediated the association between the perceived peer support with the interaction between optimism and value. Taken generally, disclosure can be explained by the independent and interdependent effects of optimism and value, which in turn can explain when peer support is perceived.
Keywords: Optimism, disclosure, perceived peer support.
