Our article, Loneliness in older people and COVID-19: Applying the social identity approach to digital intervention design, has now been published in Computers in Human Behavior Reports.
This paper draws on key lessons from loneliness and social identity theory literature, and consolidates lessons learned and gaps in human-computer interaction and machine learning literature on predicting and intervening in loneliness. We suggest research and design guidelines for multidisciplinary research applying psychological theory to digital social interventions for loneliness.
