In recent research on HIV/AIDS diagnoses, sociologist Liviana Calzavara (U of Toronto, Medicine) and I found that the density and overlap of their networks predicted quick disclosure by the infected person to his current sex partner.
Despite a literature search, we found little about social networks in the literature on disclosure. The literature we did find was all psychological. Can anyone suggest network references on disclosure, secrecy, confiding, or confidantes?
Thanks in advance.
