“This reference work offers a comprehensive compilation of current psychological research related to the construct of solitude:

  • Explores numerous psychological perspectives on solitude, including those from developmental, neuropsychological, social, personality, and clinical psychology

  • Covers concepts and theoretical approaches, empirical research, as well as clinical applications …”
