Join leaders from the faith and mental health communities for a discussion of Diverse Perspectives on Loneliness, Friendship, the Psyche, and the Soul
Reported loneliness has reached such levels in the United States to attract the attention of the Surgeon General. Linked to a myriad of physical, emotional, and behavioral problems, the issue is now affecting somewhere between one third to one half of the country’s teens and adults. And the epidemic impacts the quality of our social and political fabric to boot. The problem is a complex one and so requires a complex response. It demands a real search into America’s soul. OLOGY is bringing together prominent leaders from different faith communities alongside research and clinical psychologists to discuss the trends and their impacts on respective circles. We will consider the roles friendships within and across people groups play in healing, and we will consider the scientifically observed obstacles preventing connection between people of different backgrounds.
Our expert panel will:
- Speak to national trends in reported loneliness and the scientific consensus of their physical, psychological, social, and spiritual impacts.
- Offer scientific insights into obstacles to fostering relationships between folks of different backgrounds and the evidence-based methods of weaving greater social integration.
- Delineate the different ways varying people groups manifest loneliness and generate ideas for counteractive institutional collaboration.
- Collaborate to form inter-professional and interfaith networks of holistic care for the diverse local community.
