The pandemic has upended the normal way of life. Among the many implications of COVID-19, there has been a huge emotional toll, not only in our everyday lives but across societies as people grapple not only with a new and unknown virus, but with the changes to policy that have had wide-ranging economic and social impacts. How people feel within a society matters. As the crisis looks set to continue into 2021, addressing the emotional well-being of individuals and communities alike will be key to societal resilience.
Please join us on 19 November 2020 to discuss how a more comprehensive and nuanced understanding of emotions and their central role in fostering personal and collective resilience can help shape better politics and bring communities together.
Our panelists are:
Professor Marc Brackett, Founding Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, Yale University
Jennifer Nadel, Director, Compassion in Politics
Dr Claire Yorke, Author, Researcher and former Yale Postdoctoral fellow
