Viewing single post of blog Dialogue

I was at a lecture in Leeds today about older people’s mental health and alcohol misuse (NHS Leeds & York Partnership / Forward Leeds). One of the main risk factors to alcohol misuse is social isolation: Lack of human contact and dialogue/connection.

A key phrase that I noted was ‘discrepancy in thoughts’ which was in the context of discussing the link between dementia and alcohol (alcohol related brain damage such as Korsakoff’s syndrome or alcoholic dementia).

Discrepancy of thoughts could be one person’s incompatible thoughts within their own mind such as hallucinations and confusion but extending to the notion to dialogue; discrepancy of thoughts could create a miscommunication, contradiction or complete nonsense.
