While loneliness is often examined within scientific literature, few studies have adopted a longitudinal design to understand what perpetuates loneliness.
Consequently, there is a lack of crucial information that can be used to inform effective interventions. Notably, one study found that social anxiety plays a crucial role in predicting loneliness within a six-month period. This is because loneliness is not a simple equivalent to being alone or physically isolated, and is not even strongly correlated with time spent alone. This is problematic as many organisations that want to reduce loneliness develop and implement programs that solely focus on providing consumers with more social opportunities.
Another promising approach that requires further evaluation is using a strengths-based, positive psychology framework, which is designed to increase the meaningfulness of existing relationships, promote positive emotions, and focus on thriving during times of adversity. Further research is required in understanding the impact of strengths-based interventions on mitigating loneliness.
The clinician can also focus on identifying and addressing maladaptive fixed beliefs about others and the greater social world. Specifically, some individuals are further faced with physical barriers e. In these cases, focusing on quality rather than quantity is particularly crucial; a focus on building upon existing relationships, such as turning acquaintances into friends, may be more feasible than a focus on making new friends.
The United Kingdom is currently leading the way in highlighting loneliness as a key public health priority, with the British Government appointing a loneliness minister in early Australia is following this lead.
While these investments are a welcomed first step, the impact of these programs is unclear without proper evaluation. While loneliness has been consistently identified as a public health concern, loneliness is at risk of being belittled and its impact underestimated in Australia. Evidence-based solutions are not just informed by rigorous data but also designed, developed, and informed by the perspectives of consumers and the community around them.
