Loneliness: the great challenge of the 21st century

  Date:
 Type: Course
 Line of Knowledge: 
 Location: Málaga

The importance of social relationships has been extensively studied for decades, highlighting their relevance to people's physical and mental health. Loneliness is understood as a painful experience experienced in the absence of social relationships, feelings of belonging or due to a sense of isolation. This phenomenon arises as a result of a perceived discrepancy between social needs and their availability, i.e. it is an emotional state that reflects the subjective experience of the socially isolated.
