Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The workplace has undergone tremendous changes due to the pandemic. Today we are witnessing a sea change in workplace environments and the way work is carried out. The role of mental health professionals in the new work scenario has increased and the special issue is aimed at looking at various facets of workplace changes and stress from a psychological medicine perspective.

The scope of the issue relates to the important need to look at issues in organisational psychological medicine post the pandemic. These include early identification, diagnosing and managing psychopathological sequelae, resulting from the workplace and beyond, preventing psychopathologies resulting from workplace practices and standards with emphasis on the impact of the pandemic. The added inclusion to the scope is the paradigm shift - the enhancing of human capital potential using holistic principals; resilience and positive psychological medicine along with psychotherapeutic principles that shall aid the same. Thus, besides principals of positive psychological medicine the added coordinated use of neurosciences, dynamic psychological and management underpinnings, cognitive medicine, and spiritual philosophy in programs will offer resilience and enhancement of the potential of human capital of an organisation in the post pandemic workplace. Special articles on specific issues like trauma and grief, procrastination and marital issues as well lifestyle factors that affect the workplace post pandemic shall be considered as well. Review papers, clinical studies, case studies, psychotherapy cases and viewpoints and workplace ethics related papers shall also be considered.
