For over a year now, we have been faced with the challenges of living through a world-wide pandemic. What can psychology tell us about ways to adapt, and even thrive, in these challenging times? Please begin by reading the article How to Thrive During the Pandemic: 10 Strategies for Resilience Based on Brain Science, by Dr. Tracy Brower in Forbes (April 28, 2020). Forbes is a magazine for the public, not a peer-reviewed scientific journal. But this article provides an appropriate list of evidence-informed approaches for resilience. Each of the 10 strategies is described in only a single paragraph, and so there is not space there to describe the research supporting the suggested strategies, although most paragraphs include links to supporting research. (And no, I am not asking you to follow all those links!) In an essay of about 600 words please do two things (not necessarily in this order): (1) Make arguments for which one of these 10 strategies you think is especially important to recommend to people, bolstering your argument both with some research evidence or conceptual ideas from Psychology (either from class readings or videos or a link provided in the article) and something from your own experience or that of someone you know or know about. (2) Make an argument for which one of the 10 suggested strategies you find least convincing. You might find it unconvincing because you are aware of contrary evidence or concepts in psychology (in which case you would refer to those) or because you think the author did an insufficient job of making the case in the single paragraph available to her (in which case you would explain how the case could have been strengthened).
