Less Loneliness, More Connection
Loneliness Awareness Week is 12-16 June 2023.
Social psychologists define loneliness as ‘the gap between the social connections you would like to have and those you feel you experience.’ Whilst medical researchers have concluded the heightened risk of mortality from loneliness equals that of smoking 15 cigarettes a day or being an alcoholic, and exceeds the health risks associated with obesity.
With the pandemic producing an ‘alarming increase’ in loneliness across the globe, it’s wholly apt the theme for 2022’s Mental Health Awareness Week was loneliness.
In this bespoke, signature workshop, we’ll explore the power of social connection to mitigating loneliness and boosting wellbeing. In this 60 minute virtual workshop, you’ll explore:
- The importance of social connection and time spent with others on our happiness, health and wellbeing.
- The science of attachment and why are we ‘wired to connect’
- The power of Oxytocin
- Barriers to social connection (such as being an introvert) and how to overcome them
- Build rapport quickly and easily with the ‘Rapport Triangle’
- Empathetic listening practice to boost connection and help us have conversations that matter – so those people around us feel less lonely too.
