About the Event

:Recent studies on loneliness show that Generation Z and the Millennial generation are reporting significant increase in loneliness than previous generations.  These same studies show that those who experience social isolation are twice as likely to engage in substance use, as well as having an increased rate of medical and mental health diagnoses.   Loneliness can also lead to entering into unhealthy relationships, while being vulnerable to participating in criminal acts.  During the course of this training, we will explore some of the contributing factors of loneliness such as; trauma/toxic stress, social media, substance use, as well as the increase in loneliness in the time of Covid-19.

Objectives:

  1. Participants will increase their understanding of current research relating to the impact that loneliness has on various generations.
  2. Participants will increase their understanding of contributing factors for loneliness.
  3. Participants will increase their understanding of the impact of loneliness has on the brain.
  4. Participants will be introduced to strategies for connection to counter the impact of loneliness.
