Topic: THE DANCE OF LONELINESS
Presenter: Dr. Mary Pat Sullivan
Dr. Mary Pat Sullivan is a registered social worker and social gerontologist, and Director of Social Work at Nipissing University in North Bay. She is also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Dementia Research Centre, University College London. Dr Sullivan was a member of the Executive Committee of the British Society of Gerontology. Prior to her academic career in the UK, Dr Sullivan was a clinical social worker involved in the development, delivery and evaluation of geriatric mental health services in northern and eastern Ontario.
The dynamic nature of loneliness in later life has been largely overlooked and its causes and consequences remain poorly understood. This presentation builds on a recent examination of how lonely older men and women talk about loneliness and presents findings from a study exploring temporal variations in loneliness and the internal and external factors that may contribute to the experience. Strategies to combat loneliness in older age are also explored.
