This chapter discusses social support interventions that seek to temporarily graft a relationship onto a person's existing social network in the form of one-to-one support interventions. In these instances, the role of the professional is expanded to include the provision of informal types of social support in the context of a more personal relationship. These interventions are also distinguished from programs that focus on assisting existing network members to provide more effective support to a person in need, such as a spouse, child, parent, or friend.
