Intimacy during the Pandemic for Older Adults (via State of Mind)
Metapsychosis contributing poet Andrea van de Loo was recently featured in a State of Mind podcast & radio show episode hosted by Debra Sloss, LMFT. She shares her story of finding love through a reading group on our site. Thanks to State of Mind for sharing this interview!
Joining Debra Sloss this month are licensed psychotherapist and educator Melissa Fritchle, LMFT, who specializes in intimacy, and 79-year-old WWII survivor, writer and retired healer Andrea van de Loo. They discuss how the pandemic is shaping intimate relationships among seniors. Andrea describes how she met Geoffrey through an online poetry study group and how they developed a deeply meaningful long-distance and entirely internet-based relationship over the last 8 months. She recounts the ways in which they are using technology to create shared experiences and managing to “be together.”
