Reflections on the Pandemic in the Future of the World

Human Relations in the Post-pandemic Period -New Truths in the New Normal-

Pandemics are also psychological phenomena. When we search the literature on pandemic psychology, it is worth noting that the successive reflections are always related to the psychological dimension. Unlike conventional natural disasters, COVID-19 infection pandemic is a trauma that affects people regardless of location and time. It affected people’s lives without knowing when and where to come. Despair, inadequacy, pessimism, burnout, anxiety for the future and hopelessness aroused feelings. Uncertainty increased anxiety. The danger dimension of crises evokes a sense of burnout that we have allostatic burden. On the other hand, if the size of the opportunity can be focused, it turns into trauma that develops trauma. Mental transformation, social transformation, economic transformation and political transformation are chained. Modern man was in a cycle of social mobility, economic mobility and body comfort. With the virus pandemic, his comfort was impaired, his freedom was restricted, he had to change the life focused on speed and pleasure. The first thing that changed was the close relationships and experiences. In this study, we will consider human as a bio-psycho-socio-spiritual entity and discuss analysis and ways out.
