ABSTRACT

The interest of leisure researchers nowadays might be said to do with matters related to leisure participants, such as their motivation, satisfaction, benefits that their engagement in leisure activities brings to them. Most of these studies focus on the psychological aspect of people’s leisure behavior. It is not enough, however, to understand the personal leisure behavior of a person only in psychological terms as people’s leisure behavior can also be influenced by their daily relations with his/her surroundings. In this study, the applications and challenges of social network approaches to leisure studies are suggested. Author hopes this study could provide theoretical backgrounds for explaining a person's leisure behavior based on the macro aspect of interpersonal networks.
