The presentation will address the three pandemics: COVID-19, anxiety/panic about the disruption to everyday life, especially for children and families; and systemic racism continuing to infect our communities. A psychoanalytic perspective will be outlined regarding managing the long term traumatic impact of the loss of normal life and helplessness regarding the unpredictable nature of the pandemic and its effects. Clinical vignettes will be presented to highlight this perspective, with implications for strategies to move children, families, and communities forward. The presentation format will allow time for participant discussion.
