Closeness to one's father and a sense of loneliness among Hispanic and Caucasian college adult males

Rodolfo Acuna, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the closeness to one's father and a sense of loneliness among Hispanic and Caucasian college adult males. In essence, this study was an attempt to gain a greater understanding of the connection, if any, between the presence of a “father wound” and degree of loneliness that men report as adults. Results indicated that a significant relationship does not appear to exist between the closeness to one's father and a sense of loneliness study participants. ^
