The Outbreak of Loneliness and it's
Individual and Collective Impact

Recently there has been an expanded awareness of an increase in the number of people suffering from chronic loneliness.  Through large scale research it has been assessed that from the early 2000’s until now, the population of people experiencing loneliness has jumped from 20 % to 40%.  There are a number of factors contributing to this current epidemic.  There are also many elements which can either feed into the sense of loneliness or counter it.  Whether this is something that you or a loved one are experiencing, this workshop offers new ways to understand and reduce or eliminate the impact that comes with a widespread overarching sense of loneliness.
