Several countries point loneliness as a public health problem. However, this is a topic that, most of the time, we don't want to talk or think about.
In this workshop, we will address the incredible power of connection with others, the importance of relationships and deconstruct the concept of loneliness and its consequences. “What if I feel alone? What if I see someone I care about withdrawing and isolating themselves? How did/did you get here? And now? What can I do?". These are some answers that you will find in this workshop, expanding our vision on how to prevent and intervene in the barriers of social connection.
