CHAMPS Talks - Human Connection In A Lonely World
Loneliness affects millions of people in the UK every year and is a key driver of poor mental health. Even before the pandemic, many of us felt that we were living isolated and disconnected lives. In fact, half of the British people are seeing friends and leaving their homes less since the pandemic which are the findings from a new study by Kings College London and Ipsos Mori. Even being back in a face-to-face office environment is leaving many people feeling lonely and we are now beginning to understand that this isn’t just an issue impacting the elderly or those living alone.
Is there a way we can reach out to others to feel less alone? Is technology a help or a hindrance in connection, and even when we are back surrounded by people at work, how do we ensure we maintain good connections? This 45-minute webinar with Ruth & Tara from Team CHAMPS will walk through the current loneliness and isolation research, hints, and tips for managing your own loneliness, how to look out for your colleagues in a hybrid world, and positive psychology interventions to boost connection which are practical and evidenced-based.
There will be time for a Q&A with the speakers.
