Online vs. Face-to-Face Self-Disclosure among AA Members

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Self-disclosure is an important part of the recovery process articulated in the Alcoholics Anonymous literature. Some studies of online support groups have shown greater social support and propensity for self-disclosure through attendance in online meetings than in face-to-face meetings, a concept that seemed to be supported by hyperpersonal communication theory. This study chose to investigate whether self-disclosure is enacted and perceived differently for AA members based on their predominant type of meeting attendance. Survey findings indicate that participants are more willing to disclose during face-to-face meetings than they are online in both the honesty and depth self-disclosure dimensions. Only reciprocity was statistically unchanged across the meeting types.
