Another Psychological Spring Cleaning


It's time for a psychological spring cleaning yet again...

Psychiatry & Society

This video series is taking a short break while Dr Moffic travels. For now, enjoy the rerun of this video with updated commentary.

Since we covered psychological spring cleaning in the video from last year at this time, hopefully this will be a worthwhile reminder. As I and some others have covered over the past month, we have just passed the 4 year anniversary of the recognition of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. Since there was not a clear time of celebrating the end of the pandemic, and since less-severe COVID-19 infections still take place, there is a challenge to adequately mourn the COVID times and clean out one’s mind to learn what we can from that time and move on better prepared for the future. A similar challenge occurs for each of us individually. If we review the prior year, what do we want to get over better psychologically and what springs to mind to plant for the coming year?

Dr Moffic is an award-winning psychiatrist who specialized in the cultural and ethical aspects of psychiatry and is now in retirement and retirement as a private pro bono community psychiatrist.
