J.W. (Terry) Freiberg is a social psychologist with a PhD from UCLA who, after serving as a professor at Boston University for a decade or so, decided to take a sabbatical of sorts to attend Harvard Law School.  He then worked as an attorney for several years in Boston and he is a member of the Massachusetts State Bar.  Terry is a prolific author who studies chronic loneliness through the lens of a social psychologist.  If you get a chance, pick up his most recent book, “Surrounded by Others and Yet so Alone:  A Lawyer’s Case Stories of Love, Loneliness and Litigation.”  It is a fascinating and easy to read book on this pervasive topic that, unfortunately, affects a large portion of our population.   You can also see Terry’s other books and publications at this website, www.thelonelinessbooks.com   I think you will enjoy hearing his story.
