I’m doing an essay at the moment which requires me to look at social psychological theories and community based theories on loneliness in older men. I’ve got to look at how society and community may result in loneliness in older men. Question is, I’ve started to write about bereavement and the impact this can have on older men: I.e loneliness is the consequence. I’m trying to link this to a social theory as it has to be how social factors may cause loneliness. Could I talk about social bonding which creates intimate relationships and when this is lost in bereavement it’s the cause of loneliness?

Maybe start with and link it to attachment theory? At baby stage social connection is paramount to health and development. Without it, problems. It's possible/likely, that never entirely dissapears, so maybe in older people a left over from that? Just a thought.
