Loneliness

This highly insightful video draws upon aspects of CBT to help us understand the ways in which our environment, biology, thoughts, beliefs and behaviours led to loneliness. Its particularly useful for people who struggle with social anxiety, low self-esteem and also trauma which is interpersonal in nature and has led to disconnection from others.

From the channel, Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell: "Everybody feels lonely sometimes. But only few of us are aware how important this feeling was for our ancestors - and that our modern world can turn it into something that really hurts us. Why do we feel this way and what can we do about it?"
