Psychological Coping in the Era of COVID-19

Psychological Coping in the Era of COVID-19

In the special episode of the Chicago Psychology Podcast, Kyle and Scott discuss what the scientific literature states are the best ways to cope during the COVID-19 pandemic. They review several articles from scientific journals and popular news sources. These are a springboard for discussing the current findings about mental health during the pandemic. What can we learn from what was discovered in China? How can we implement those findings? How is the pandemic effecting mental health in the US? Kyle and Scott explore these questions, and touch upon the growing demand for mental health services from Millennials and generation Z generations, and the shift in workplace benefits to accommodate them. How will this impact the provision of therapy in the post COVID-19 era?
