dc.description.abstractObjective. The purpose of this article was to examine the stress-buffering effect relationship between social support and psychological responses to injury. Method. The study matched social support types with injury stressors, where stressors, perception of social support availability and psychological responses of injured footballers (N=71) were measured. Post injury, injured footballers completed measures of stressors, social support and psychological responses to injury. Moderated hierarchical regression analysis was used to analyse the data. Results. The moderated hierarchical analysis disclosed significant (p< .05) bufferingeffects for the perception of available emotional support in relation to responses of restlessness, feeling cheated and isolation, and the perception of esteem support in relation to responses of restlessness and isolation. Significant (p< .05) main effects were found for the perception of available emotional, and esteem support in relation to responses of restlessness, isolation and feeling cheated. Conclusion. The findings of the current study furthers our under standing in the stress buffering effects of social support on the impact of injury stressors in relations to psychological responses to injury; specifically the effects of perceived social support availability in relation to psychological responses. The discoveries provide important implications for the sport psychology domain. They provide the significance of social support interventions with injured footballers, in attempt to diminish the adverse consequences of injury stressors.en_US
