Our own research has focused on musically gifted high school students who successfully completed a statewide talent search and attended an intensive 4-week music program at the California State Summer School for the Arts (CSSSA), also currently known as Innerspark.
Research participants attended CSSSA during one of the years from 1993-1998, and voluntarily filled out questionnaires prior to attending the program.
In the process of coding the responses of our CSSSA students, we recognized many examples of what social support researchers have identified as instrumental support, which is tangible or material in nature, and emotional support, which is affirming or esteem-oriented (Cobb, 1979; Cohen & Hoberman, 1983; House, 1981; Kahn, 1979; Weiss, 1974).
