Dealing with hardship: stress and resilience in the COVID19 era
Professor Christina van der Feltz-Cornelis, University of York

The talk will focus on how resilience can play a role in dealing with stress. Based upon an analysis of the findings of a survey amongst University of York staff and students, that had to deal with the sudden COVID19 outbreak and altered work and personal arrangements because of that, it will explain what factors play a role in vulnerability and resilience. It will set out the evidence that cultural background, green environment and social isolation have powerful psychological effects and will illustrate how people can be resilient.

This lecture will be hosted on Zoom – details will be circulated to YPS members.
