Psychotherapist breaks down COVID-19
May 28, 2020
Prof. Laura Cavanagh has explanations for a lot of things. A mom, clinician and author of Essentials of Understanding Psychology, she can tell you why we were happier last year when the Raptors won the NBA championship or why some of us feel anxious as the province begins reopening the economy.
Ms. Cavanagh, Program Co-ordinator of Seneca’s Behavioural Sciences diploma program, has been working in psychological services for more than 10 years. With extensive experience in clinical practice, including in the foster care system and in addictions treatment, she sat down with Seneca News this week to talk about how different people deal with the fear and stress that come with the spread of COVID-19.
