Whatever your coronavirus story – loss, Zoom meetings, challenges, ﬁnding meaning in a simpler life – the chances are that psychology and psychologists have featured heavily. Early on as we adapted to remote working and pandemic life, juggling anxieties andhope, we decided to reﬂect that in a special summer edition. Well over 100 psychologists have contributed to our theme of‘Towards a new normal, and beyond’, including some of theirartistic efforts dotted throughout. We thank them all.
