Connected but Alone? TED Talk with Sherry Turkle https://www.ted.com/talks/sherry_turkle_alone_together/transcript

Click on the links above to read the journal article on spiritual needs and then watch and listen to the video interview – with your community in mind.

2. How might you apply what you have learned about stress in this module ( two articles above) to serve as a health resource for people in your community?
