Psychological Insights for Understanding COVID-19
The Psychological Insights for Understanding COVID-19 series aims to highlight important themes in psychological science that engage with people’s unprecedented experience of the covid-19 pandemic. These short, accessible volumes draw together chapters as they originally appeared before covid-19 descended on the world but demonstrate how researchers and professionals in psychological science had developed theory and research on key topics germane to the global pandemic. Each volume includes a specially commissioned, expert introduction that contextualises the chapters in relation to the crisis, reflects on the relevance of psychological research during this significant global event, and proposes future research and vital interventions that elucidate understanding and coping with covid-19. With individual volumes exploring society, health, family, work and media, the Psychological Insights for Understanding COVID-19 series offers thought-provoking reading for professionals, students, academics and policy makers concerned with psychological consequences of the pandemic for individuals, families and society.
