Love and loneliness are key aspects of our lives – including our working lives.
Loneliness is a persistent theme. We encounter loneliness in managers, in professionals and at all levels of organizations. Although they are often surrounded by colleagues, in their organisations, many people feel lonely in one sense or another.
Just as we encounter loneliness, we also encounter love in our working lives. It matters whether we like our co-workers, our tasks and the organization. Love in the workplace involves empathy and care. It involves responsibility and determination. It also involves joy, sorrow, anxiety and rivalry.


Birgitte Bonnerup and Annemette Hasselager.
Both are psychologists and qualified supervisors in organizational psychology. They work as organizational psychologists and therapists with individuals, groups and organizations.
They are lecturers at Roskilde University/Denmark and have written books and articles on organizational psychology. Both are active members of the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations (ISPSO).
RINO Amsterdam is happy to have Birgitte and Annemette give this two-day workshop at RINO focused on the theme of loneliness and love in the workplace.


The workshop is for consultants and coaches and is also relevant for professionals who work in mental health care, like psychotherapists, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists.


The goal of the workshop is to create a better understanding of the complexity of people’s working lives and the emotions that are part of it. It will increase participants’ understanding of their own workplace and that of their clients.


Day one: Love and Loneliness at work.
Day two: Pair and pair dynamics at work.
Throughout both days there will be a mix of theoretical presentations, practical exercises, reflections and discussion.
