Coping with Isolation
Being a human is a tough gig. We’re complicated, thanks to those pesky emotions we have. For example, have you ever felt lonely, even when you’re in a crowd of people? Maybe at other times you’ve been on your own by choice yet been totally content. Being around people or being alone is usually up to us.
But what about when that choice is taken from you? Maybe you’re separated from others because the world has been gripped by a virus? Maybe work has taken you to some far-flung place? Either way, it’s going to have some major effects on your life. And when you can no longer choose to be social, it can be hard to cope. This course is here to help with that

- Identify the effects of isolation
