It is impossible to deny the extraordinary societal impact of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome 2 (SARS-Cov-2). All of us are bombarded daily with messages and information related to the pandemic. As this virus garners heightened attention from the media, individuals may have difficulty delineating between misinformation and accurate information about the illness.
We are not writing this article to perpetuate increased fear among the counseling community regarding the spread of the novel coronavirus, but rather to:
- Provide resources helpful for staying informed about the impact of COVID-19, which is a disease caused by SARS-Cov-2
- Inform counseling professionals about how they can support clients affected by the virus and its societal impact
