The Psychology of pandemics and social distancing: your questions, our answers!
Thursday, April 16, 2020
We’ve had many conversations in the past few weeks about the psychological impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. We know you’ve got lots of questions and we want to be here for for you as a community to come together, connect, learn and discuss. Sadly, we can’t meet in a real pub for this session for obvious reasons, so for this event (and over the next few months if it goes well and you guys like it) we will meet via the popular video events platform Zoom and we encourage you all to have a glass ready.
We are also changing the format slightly. Rather than delivering a talk, we will have a panel of our Pub Psychology friends and experts (this time it’s Dr. Nash Popovic, Yannick Jacob and Nic Malcomson) at your service and ready to answer all your questions as best they can. You can post your question to us in advance, or you can ask the panel directly during the session. This is your chance to ask what you really want to know.
We hope to see you there.
