Webinar: The Relationship between Loneliness, Isolation, and Social Distancing
March 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Both loneliness and social isolation pose myriad health risks. They have been linked to diverse health outcomes like depression, reduced cognitive functioning, and reduced immune functioning. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to implementation of unprecedented “social distancing” strategies crucial to limiting the spread of the virus. In addition to quarantine and isolation procedures for those exposed to or infected with COVID-19, social distancing is a required measure amongst the general population to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. This webinar will discuss these constructs, how COVID-19 has affected our ability to manage them and review coping strategies to help combat the negative implications of these constructs.
