Nur Haffiza Binti Rahaman, Che Su Mustaffa, and Taib Ariffin
Abstract—In this paper, the influence of social support and impression management on the well-being of flood victims in Malaysia will be discussed. The paper starts with a definition of all the variables. Literature review so far shows that there is a limited research on victims of flood disaster in Malaysia. This paper will explore perceptions of flood victims toward social support provided by the government and analyze flood victims’ well-being and impression management. Finally, a conceptual framework will be proposed in accordance with the flood situation in Malaysia. The conceptual framework includes three main ideas, namely social support, impression management and well-being. This paper contributes to the study of disaster by providing a conceptual framework, which can be used to further investigate variables that influenced well-being because of disaster.

Index Terms—Well-Being, social support, impression management, disaster
