With the COVID-19 pandemic, clients are increasingly vulnerable to loneliness. According to research, loneliness exacerbates nearly every mental health issue and predicts an early death.

Attendees will learn how to help clients overcome cognitions that coincide with loneliness, and evidence-based strategies for clients seeking connection.  (Intermediate)
