Interest in Intergenerational Research: Social Connection and Loneliness as Predictors
Northern Kentucky University
This project aimed to understand variables affecting young adults’ interest in an intergenerational contact study. Undergraduate participants (N = 150) completed baseline measures and indicated their interest in a 6-week study communicating with an older adult partner. Significant predictors of likelihood to participate included loneliness (p = .03) and social connectedness (p = .009).
