The Psychological & Systemic Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic
In this special episode of the Chicago Psychology Podcast, Scott and Kyle use an article published by TIME, “Why People Are Panic Buying as Coronavirus Spreads” as a springboard to delve into the psychology behind COVID-19 pandemic and the emotional response. Scott and Kyle explore how different countries have handled the pandemic and how leadership response impacts citizen reactions as well as how lack of clarity causes a panic response. They share what they have been hearing from medical professionals about how the pandemic will progress and how this is playing out in the consultation “room”. They also continue to explore some of the positive outgrowths of this challenging time and the altruism we see in our communities. It is their hope you find this episode to be informative and helpful as we all navigate this difficult time.
