    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.4, pp. 499-511, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.018661

    Abstract This study examined the moderating effects of parent-child, same-sex, opposite-sex and teacher-student relationships between sibling status and loneliness during COVID-19. A total of 1,591 adolescents in China completed the study questionnaires which assessed the aforementioned variables. The results showed that same-sex and teacherstudent relationships moderated the association between sibling status and loneliness. The results indicated that among participants with good same-sex relationships during COVID-19, compared to non-only-children participants, the only-children participants were more likely to experience a lower level of loneliness. However, participants with poor same-sex relationships experienced similar level of loneliness regardless of whether they had siblings. These findings… More >

    Marcela Carrasco1,*, MBeatriz Fernández2, Emma Alexander3, MSoledad Herrera2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.1, pp. 99-109, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.011568

    Abstract Loneliness is considered a public health problem that negatively affects wellbeing, especially in the older population. In Latin-American countries, most of the older population live with their family. Although this is thought to diminish feelings of loneliness, there is scarce data to support this.

A survey was conducted of a representative sample of community older people (60–97 years) from Santiago, Chile, using the UCLA… More >

    Guanglei Zhang1, Silu Chen2,*, Youqing Fan3, Yue Dong1

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.21, No.1, pp. 13-29, 2019, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2019.010730

    Abstract This paper attempts to unlock how and when leaders’ loneliness influences their voice-taking behavior in the workplace by integrating the regulatory loop model of loneliness and the affect theory of social exchange. Through collecting a daily diary study of 87 paired leader-follower samples from two electronics industry companies based in Guangzhou, China, this study finds that (1) leaders’ loneliness has a significant negative impact on social self-efficacy and voice-taking behavior; (2) leaders’ social self-efficacy mediates the relationship between their loneliness and voice-taking behavior; (3) performance pressure moderates the relationship between leaders’ loneliness and voice-taking behavior; and, (4) the indirect effect… More >
