dc.description.abstractThe National Behavior Consortium hosts a presentation by author Steven Taylor on The Psychology of Pandemics: On May 11, 2020, the National Behavioral Consortium (NBC) hosted a presentation by Dr. Steven Taylor, author of The Psychology of Pandemics. This book explores the psychological factors that influence the spread of pandemic infections, as well as the associated emotional distress and social disruption of such events. It reveals how psychological factors are important for understanding and managing societal problems associated with pandemics, such as the spreading of excessive fear, stigmatization, and xenophobia that occur when people are threatened with infection. This book offers the first comprehensive analysis of the psychology of pandemics, and describes the psychological reactions to pandemics, including maladaptive behaviors, emotions, and defensive reactions. As well, it reviews the psychological vulnerabilities that contribute to the spreading of disease and distress and considers empirically supported methods for addressing these problems, outlining the implications for public health planning. The book was published in late 2019. Dr. Taylor is a Professor and Clinical Psychologist, Department of Psychiatry, University of Vancouver, Canada.en_US
