Chronic Loneliness
We are currently living in an interesting age where we are the most connected and yet the most disconnected than we have ever been. Exploring the impact of faulty connections and failing relationships, J.W. Freiberg, uses his 30 year legal career and masterful storytelling ability to share 5 unique tales of chronic loneliness, one of modern society’s most serious public health crises. According to his research, there are two pathways to loneliness: disconnection and misconnection. Using his case study format, Freiberg is often called the “Oliver Sacks of Law”. An Attorney and Social Psychologist, he received his Phd from UCLA, his JD from Harvard Law School and is a member in good standing of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States.
