- ItemThe relationship between indirect aggression and loneliness for emerging adults: what does interpersonal competence have to do with wellbeing?(2020) Di Stasio, Maria; Rinaldi, Christina; Sciaraffa, Jessica; Cheong, ClarissaThe present study investigated the mediating role of interpersonal competence in the relationship between indirect aggression and loneliness for emerging adults. One hundred and sixty-seven Canadian undergraduate students aged 18-25 participated and completed an anonymous, online survey. Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the mediating role of interpersonal competence in the relationship between indirect aggression and loneliness. The findings revealed that interpersonal competence mediated the relationship between indirect aggression for targets and loneliness. These findings have implications for mental health researchers and practitioners and can inform the development of prevention and intervention programs for young adults dealing with indirect aggression.
