Book Description

Pandemics are large-scale epidemics that spread all around the world. Virologists forecast that the next pandemic could happen in the coming years; probably from some type of influenza; with potentially devastating outcomes. Vaccinations; if available; and behavioral methods are important for stemming the spread of infection. However; notably little attention has been dedicated to the psychological factors that affect the spread of pandemic infection and the related emotional distress and social disruption. Psychological factors are vital for many reasons. They play a part in non-adherence to vaccination and hygiene programs and play an important role in how people deal with the threat of infection and related losses. Psychological factors are important for comprehending and managing societal problems associated with pandemics; such as the stigmatization; spreading of excessive fear; and xenophobia that occurs when people are threatened with infection.

This ebook; The Psychology of Pandemics; PDF; provides the first comprehensive analysis of the psychology of pandemics. It explains the psychological reactions to pandemics; including maladaptive behaviors; emotions; and defensive reactions; and examines the psychological vulnerability factors that add to the spreading of disease and distress. It also assesses empirically supported methods for addressing these problems and outlines the effects of public health planning.
