SCHOOF AGUIRRE, María Teresa; MANZANARES MEDINA, Eduardo  and  GRIMALDO MUCHOTRIGO, Mirian. Social Support Network and Community Support Among Members of an Organization of Persons Displaced by Political Violence Residing in Cañete, Peru. Rev. Costarric. Psic [online]. 2018, vol.37, n.2, pp.107-129. ISSN 1659-2913.

The present study’s aim was to determine the relationship between the social support network and community support among members of an organization of persons displaced by political violence. The correlational-descriptive research included 80 individuals (49 females and 31 males) with a mean age of 45.79 years old (SD = 11.41),who reside in a province of Lima and came, mostly, from the department of Ayacucho. Participants completed the Social Network Questionnaire (SNQ), as well as the Perceived Community Support Questionnaire (PCSQ). Among the main findings, we found that the Integration component and Community Participation from the PCSQ correlate with two functions and two categories from the SNQ. Specifically there is a statistically significant positive association with the Cognitive Guide function (r s = .32), the Socialization function (r s = .24) and the Satisfaction category (r s = .24); and a statistically significant negative association with the Heterogeneity category (r s = -.23).Implications of the results obtained will be discussed in the present paper.
