Κοτζαμανίδου, Μαρία


Σhe present study had two goals; a first goal was to examine the understanding of loneliness of preschool and school- age children and to investigate their ability to distinguish between the concepts of loneliness and solitude. Secondly, it was aimed to investigate the links between children‟s ability to distinguish the concepts of loneliness- solitude and their ToM performance. In this study participated 90 children that were classified into three age groups; 4-year, 6-year and 8-year-old. For the assessment of children‟s ability to understand loneliness were conducted private interviews. Moreover, it was used an experimental task consisted of eight hypothetical stories that assessed children‟s ability to distinguish between the concepts of loneliness and solitude. ToM was assessed through eight first- and second- order experimental tasks. The results showed that children describe loneliness with reference to negative emotion, isolation and lack of company and that the variable of age affects both children‟s ability to distinguish between the concepts of loneliness and aloneness and their perception of solitude. Apart from that, it was found that with advancing age children are more able to distinguish between experiences of loneliness and solitude depicted in stories based on the intentions, motives and emotions of hypothetical peers. Finally, the results suggested a ToM influence in specific domains of loneliness and solitude understanding.
