“is a lack of social connections and can lead to loneliness in some people, while others can feel lonely without being socially isolated”
This easy to watch video introduces you to a concept of social isolation from both a therapeutic and every day perspective. Led by professional and accredited therapists who have an interest in raising awareness and understanding of emotional wellbeing.
This is not a lesson or a tutorial but it is something slightly different. It is more of a conversation and reflections by therapists around emotions and the importance to recognise and work with your emotions to help with your personal wellbeing.
You can listen to it all at once, or each step at a time, you can come back to it time and again, when it suits you. You can watch it with friends, as part of a class tutorial or just for your own personal interest and curiosity.
You will find out about:
- the causes and descriptions of three main types of social isolation
- your own social network and review what that means
- the benefits of a solid social network
- some simple steps to take to build social connections
