Recovery College is doing a “spring spin” towards providing some support for our service users who are feeling alone and the need for connection. We are all finally able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather yet many still struggle with feeling disconnected. This week we are repeating the Challenging Loneliness and Isolation course, which had great response in January. This module supports people in exploring how they have been feeling and finding comfortable ways to start connecting with others and the community.
We are extremely pleased that Glenna L., former developer and facilitator of courses for the Wellbeing Learning Centre of CMHA Winnipeg-Manitoba, will be joining Rebecca R. as co-presenter for this module.
Challenging Loneliness and Isolation (Introduction)
Many people struggle with loneliness, yet it is rarely discussed in our society. This course will examine the stigma of loneliness and focus on the definitions and differences between loneliness and isolation. The experience of solitude and its value will be explored. Strategies to manage loneliness will be shared and students will be encouraged to gain perspective on the emotions associated with loneliness and isolation. We will also share some ideas about getting out and making new connections. We look forward to connecting with you and sharing ideas and experiences.
(1 ½ hours in length)
