Homesickness in University Students: The Role of Multiple Place Attachment
Scopelliti, Massimiliano; Tiberio, Lorenza
Environment and Behavior, v42 n3 p335-350 2010
The transition to college or university can lead to the challenge of adapting to a new setting. Homesickness has been frequently investigated as a potential negative consequence of relocation. This study analyzed the role of multiple place attachment in the development of homesickness among university students. The study used a multicausal framework. Situational, personality, and environmental psychological variables were considered. Different factors of a person's personality were associated with vulnerability to homesickness. In addition, multiple place attachment and vulnerability to homesickness impacted the homesickness felt by students. (Contains 4 tables.)
