Editorial: Surviving the trauma of COVID-19

Roxane Cohen Silver, UCI professor of psychological science, public health, and medicine writes, “Successfully managing COVID-19 and its aftermath will require that behavioral scientists provide a roadmap for public officials to ensure the public’s cooperation, trust in, and implementation of what is learned from biomedical science. … Although the timing of containment of COVID-19 remains unknown, most people will get to the other side of the pandemic recognizing strengths and coping skills that they did not realize they had.”
