Measures Library

Measures Library

Our measures library is a resource for researchers looking for psychometric tools for use in social connection research. The library is organized into measures that map on to the constructs of awareness, courage, and love, as well as general measures of social connection and other psychological phenomena that are important in social connection research.

Here is a file indexing the measures, a short description, and their validation paper.

Below are downloadable PDFs of the measure (  ) and their original validation papers (  ).*
