Helpful and meaningful interventions concerning loneliness


Loneliness can take many forms. In this workshop we look into the ways loneliness manifests itself and how people deal with it. We examine the conditions and the principles of a good conversation on loneliness: what does this sensitive topic really need? And how do we discuss them with callers, people who call because they are in need of company? We combine specific interventions that can improve our conversations on the phone and during chat sessions as a result of loneliness or dealing with the subject.
