SNFDialogues – The Psychological Effects of a Year Living with COVID-19

December 16, 2020

ATHENS — While the scientific community’s understanding of the virus continues to grow, and the pandemic’s serious socioeconomic consequences continue to unfold, the psychological effects of COVID-19, although apparent and undeniable, are not yet fully charted and comprehended. In the midst of Greece’s second lockdown, psychological fatigue from the pandemic seems to be increasing.

On Wednesday, December 16 at 18:30 (EET), SNF DIALOGUES, a series of events held through journalism nonprofit iMEdD, will host a discussion on “The Psychological Effects of a Year Living with COVID-19.” 

What is the psychological impact of being afraid of catching and transmitting the virus? How are we affected by confinement, loneliness, and forced isolation from others, and how can we ultimately emerge stronger from the introspection that the quarantine(s) has prompted?

Taking part in the webcast will be: 

Foteini Tsalikoglou, Author – Professor of Psychology at Panteion University 

Harold S. Koplewicz, founding president and Medical Director of the Child Mind Institute, and Sander Markx, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University, will address the effects of the pandemic on the mental health of adults and children through video interviews.
