Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this course will be taught virtually in 2021, with the resources and experience gained from the previous year.

In December 2019, the first cases of a new virus began to be known, which was later called Covid19. Much has been researched and written since then on the mechanisms of contagion, why in some people this disease is so serious and how to protect ourselves from it. But there is much less information that deals with the psychological effects of becoming seriously ill from this disease or how the grieving processes of those who have lost a family member have been affected by sanitary conditions of Covid19. There is also less information about how the pandemic and the different forms of lockdowns have impacted on the general population and on groups of special vulnerability.

Target group

Those with more focused background and / or experience in these fields will profit from the course particularly, though it still remains suitable for all interested.

The UAB Barcelona Summer School is open to standing local and international undergraduates and graduate students. International students who have been accomplished the first year of their undergraduate or at least the 50% of their first year credits at their home university could also be enroled at the programme.

Course aim

This course, designed for students with basic notions of psychology, medicine, nursing or public health, seeks to offer a broad vision, based on evidence, on the mental health of people during and after the pandemic. Those with more focused background and / or experience in these fields will profit from the course particularly, though it still remains suitable for all interested. Two thematic blocks will be the main elements of its content: understanding how and why the pandemic has affected us and knowing the possible alternatives for preventive and rehabilitative interventions.
