The Psychology of Pandemics

March 26 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Included in the footprint of any pandemic are not only those who sicken and die, or suffer economically, but also those who experience stress, anxiety, the fear of uncertainty, the tendency to stigmatize others, illusions of immunity, and proneness to believe in conspiracies. These are only a few of the psychological levers people pull to cope with what is happening. The impact of these attitudes and behaviors is immense. They make us miserable even if we survive a pandemic with our body and livelihood intact.

To help us contend with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering a special webinar with Dr. Steven Taylor, Professor and Clinical Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of British Columbia, Canada, and author of The Psychology of Pandemics: Preparing for the Next Global Outbreak of Infectious Disease (2019).

Joining Dr. Taylor will be:

Dr. Julie Braciszewski, a clinical psychologist who specializes in child, adolescent, adult, family and couples therapy.

Dr. Steven Huprich, Professor of Psychology at the University of Detroit Mercy
