Abstract

The value of social capital has been bandied about by policymakers as if a new, valuable resource for employers and governments has suddenly been discovered. But now that we have put a price on it, will relationships be downgraded in this era of social capitalism?  In the fourth article of her continuing series on public policy, work, and mental health, Elizabeth Cotton argues that personal and group relationships provide real opportunities for psychological growth and resilience.
