Ready to Join?

We would like to invite you to join us for an interactive and thought-provoking event that casts light on how people cope with difficult situations, exploring the importance of relationships in such instances.

We are very glad to host Robin Goodwin, Professor of Psychology at Warwick University, who will share with us results of his latest work on this key theme. Drawing on his research with colleagues across Asia and Europe Robin will tackle some important questions:

1. How do people cope during disaster in general, and with the current Covid-19 crisis? What are the key resilience factors? How is media use and wider communication important in this?

2. What is the role of relationship at these times? and how are different relationships (with partners, friends/families, wider others) challenged by mass stressors?

After the talk you will have the opportunity to share your personal experiences on coping with difficult situations with other InterNations fellas, in breakout rooms

We look forward to welcoming you
