An ideal answer will include:
1) Esteem support can reduce a person's anxiety about troubling events. If the listener is attentive, sympathetic, and uncritical, disclosure can motivate people to change significant aspects of their lives.
2) Disclosure can provide instrumental support if the listener offers concrete help, such as grocery shopping or sharing child care responsibilities.
3) A listener may be able to offer information support through advice and guidance.
4) Even if a problem isn't easily solved, listeners can provide motivational support.
