The pandemic has affected all our lives: Being locked down at home; stuck together as a family or a couple; fearful that ordinary human contact might be dangerous; deprived of contacts we cherish; afraid for loved ones or faced with their untimely death; going to work when it's unsafe and scary, or having lost work and income; being lonely; and - feeling unprotected by the authorities we depend on.
None of us has been exempt from the impact of this pandemic.
And now, when things begin to ease, we wonder: How can we feel safe again? Can we get back to a life that feels normal? This might be an opportunity to pause and think, how the pandemic has impacted on our lives and may affect our future.
In a series of live streamed events, psychoanalysts will join in dialogues to think about these issues, with each other and with the audience. The events are listed below. We hope to add more in due course.
These events are free. If you can’t make the time, you can still register and get access to the recording later.
