Loneliness can be a terrible experience. Yet, surprisingly counsellors, therapists and professional helpers are rearely taught how to help their clients manage loneliness. Written specially for professional helpers, Loneliness, Stress and Well-Being provides a thorough background to the theories concerning the nature of loneliness and a basic introduction to its management. It describes a simple method of assessing the degree and nature of loneliness and includes invaluable practical strategies for helping clients to manage their social problems.
