On episode 99, we welcome back existential psychologist Emmy van Deurzen to discuss the emotional effects of Brexit, how it compounded with Covid to create an existential crisis for EU nationals living in the UK, Emmy’s personal experience of xenophobia and dealing with the threat of deportation, how existential crises tend to reveal prior problems that were denied, utilizing the catastrophe for growth and psychological transformation, how to deal with populist politics, switching from reactivity to activity, and the importance of re-establishing a sense of community and solidarity to overcome tragedy.
