Social Cohesion as a Mediator of Health Outcomes

  • John Bruhn
Chapter

Hornsey and his colleagues1 wrote, “Everybody can recognize situations where they have been members – or leaders – of groups that have been more or less cohesive, and the subjective experience of being in a cohesive group compared to a noncohesive group is so dramatically different that it seems obvious that this is something that researchers are obliged to examine. But we would also argue that we have an obligation to look inside cohesive groups and to isolate the specific… group processes that differentiate the cohesive from the noncohesive group” (p. 584).
