Season 5, Episode 22. Psychologist Gabriela Encina is here to talk to us about the unique effects life in Coronavirus Pandemic era has had on expats all over the world. We've all experienced Covid fatigue, languishing, and zoom burnout. Expats have also faced family separation, social isolation, and a harsh interruption to their integration process.
Now, as numbers start to go down and many countries start to open up, it may feel like it's all sparkles and rainbows from here - and maybe it will be full of joy, but this next phase will also be hard, as we reenter society, reunite with family, and discover who our post-lockdown selves are. Gabriela walks us through all of it from a counselor's perspective, plus she gives tips on how to cope.
