Mental Strength Series:

 Combatting Loneliness & Isolation 

Despite the enormous advancements in technology and countless social applications connecting us to other people in the most distant parts of the globe, loneliness, social and emotional isolation are among the most common mental health concerns today. What’s more, research has shown that chronic loneliness and isolation can lead to significantly higher rates of illness, a shorter lifespan, increased depression and anxiety, and reduced ability to overcome life's challenges.

This live-online workshop is an introduction to the topic of loneliness and isolation that will challenge you to explore the ways your own lifestyle contributes to loneliness and isolation and develop actionable strategies to develop meaningful social connections.

This is a LIVE psycho-educational workshop. Participants will be expected to share in discussions and activities to gain the most out of this workshop.

You will learn:

  • The prevalence rates and root causes of loneliness, social and emotional isolation
  • Understand how loneliness impacts your physical and mental health
  • Explore the ways your own lifestyle contributes to loneliness and isolation
  • Learn and develop your own strategies for combatting loneliness
  • Learn a daily mindfulness practice that can help you to overcome loneliness and isolation
  • Learn actionable strategies to develop meaningful social connections

"As a therapist, it's my role to hold the space for my clients to create meaningful and lasting change."

In my experience, people will strive further, overcome great obstacles, and accomplish things they never thought possible, when they have someone in their lives who can understand where they've been, accept where they're at, and believe in their ability to achieve their greatest potential. 

This is what I call, 'holding the space.'

  


  

What former clients have to say . . . 

"Dallis does an exceptional job of creating space for you as well as making you feel cared for. That there is a bond, she does genuinely care, but it's all still very professional and ethical."
