What's wrong with loneliness - Session 2
What's Wrong With Loneliness? Part two of two workshops focused to guide and inspire delegates how to understand and manage the loneliness of their contacts, and themselves.
This is under the theme of Common Connectivity.
How to play a part to support others who feel alone - find Common Connectivity
How to approach and demonstrate connectivity
How to arrange a conversation. The key way is actively ‘sharing time’
How to communicate to someone who feels loneliness
Use Active listening skills - explain the meaning (active vs passive), refer to other part of the senses (e.g. watching vs seeing)
Responding in the appropriate way - ask questions, summarise, let them choose the route of the conversation
Other considerations - the environment and relationships.
The word ‘Communities’ is a big part with different groups, such as employment, geographical location
Self loneliness - Notice when contacts are offering to speak individuals and how important it is to respond in the right way.
It is ok to have your own time but you need to be in control.
