Abstract

In his blog, researcher Dhruv Sharma asks why in this ‘age of connectivity’, with so much research already carried out on loneliness interventions, we haven’t yet been able to solve the problem of chronic loneliness.

Dhruv has reviewed a range of loneliness interventions and concludes that there is a significant gap in the research around interventions that are both ‘radical’ and ‘digital in nature. Dhruv’s own experiments in designing such interventions can be seen in the video below.
