    Loneliness and hope are gaining a special significance during the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, the social distancing international policy and the periodical lockdown.  Recent developmental studies and a comprehensive meta-analysis demonstrated the stability of inter-individual differences, and call  for a special awareness to the impacts of their social and emotional intra- and interpersonal antecedents, concomitants, and consequences (Beller & Wagner, In press; Mund et al, 2020; Mund, Freuding, et al., 2020).The significance of awareness to loneliness, hope and solitude in the early developmental stages will be demonstrated in the presentation through focusing on development of risks, resources and coping within contextual and cultural perspectives (George-Levi, Schmidt-Barad & Margalit, In press). Considering educational and interventional considerations, we shall propose future research and intervention directions.
