But we know the importance of this party for the louletanos and we could not fail to point out and bring a little of the spirit of Loulé Carnival to all who are confined ”.

Anita’s Stories Reading “What is love?” by Davide Cali and Anna Laura Cantone
In 2019, Steven Taylor, a Canadian clinical psychologist, wrote: ‘a new pandemic is expected to occur in the coming years, with potentially devastating consequences.” It would arrive at the end of that same year. The Canadian psychologist’s statement from the University of British Columbia is taken from his book published in 2019: “The Psychology of Pandemics: preparing for the next global outbreak of infectious disease.” Steven Taylor will be at the ISPA Clinic, at a free online event, in which he will present some ideas and answer questions that have been asked in the current context. In Portugal, the pandemic has worsened. Many questions have arisen: how have the authorities managed communication with the public? What contribution can psychology experts make in this area of communication? What criteria can political power follow to keep the public in line with the definitions of pandemic management? How to understand conspiracy theories and denialist processes? What psychological impacts can be expected on the population after the pandemic? How to promote adherence to the vaccine? These and other issues will be addressed on February 15, at 6 pm. Mandatory registration: firstname.lastname@example.org
