Two papers on getting help using the Internet

Two new publications from my project on how individuals use the Internet when dealing with negative life events.
With Sonja Utz and Vera Toepoel I showed how online coping can be measured and which online activities are helpful. This paper was published online in Social Science Computer Review.
With Kevin Wright I showed that the Internet is especially helpful for those who report feelings of loneliness, social isolation, and low self-esteem. In addition, we found that men mobilized more online coping resources than women. The paper will be published in Computers and Human Behavior and can be downloaded here.
