Dealing with the COVID-19 global pandemic has forced individuals and companies to adapt quickly to change — creating much chaos and fears, as well as opportunities for flexibility and innovation. What will the world look like after people are back to work, kids are back to school, and some semblance of ‘normal life’ resumes?
Dr. Jennifer (Panning) Contarino proposes that we will experience significant changes in this recovery period including: post-traumatic hyper vigilance, striving towards homeostasis while also acknowledging the limitations of this old model, more care and connection between humans, and an adaptation to a world of ongoing uncertainty.
Jennifer (Panning) Contarino, Psy.D., (she/her/hers), Founder and President of Mindful Psychology Associates PC, has been an Illinois Licensed Clinical Psychologist for sixteen years. In 2017, she authored a chapter for the New York Times best-selling book “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Mental Health Experts Assess a President”.
