Subject:Re: measures of "toxic" social networks?

Not sure what you're looking for, but would peer contagion apply? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19575606 You might also think about social networks related to substance misuse.

This could involve social support “drain” (as opposed to receipt) but it could also reflect social network characteristics such as sabotage, control, bullying, verbal or emotional abuse, etc. I’ve seen items like this as they relate to intimate partner violence, but never related to “friends,” family members, or other social network members. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Kristi Kristen Slack, Ph.D. School of Social Work University of Wisconsin-Madison https://socwork.wisc.edu/kristi-slack
