Acta Psychopathologica journal is pleased to announce Special issue on “Psychological effects during self-quarantine”.
As we all know that new corona virus (COVID-19) is spreading through communities across the nation. Even if everyone is in practise of healthy steps to stay away from corona, one may still find themself in a situation where they are concerned that they have been exposed to the virus. Self-quarantining is only necessary if one is reasonably suspicious that they are infected with the virus, Because, it may take 2 to 14 days for the symptoms to appear, and may be able to spread the virus in that pre-symptomatic period.
Recommended length of quarantine is 14 days. Some people may feel quarantine and isolation are stressful and difficult. Psychological responses to quarantine can include: Post traumatic stress symptoms, Depression, insomnia, anxiety, confusion, anger, fear, frustration, boredom.
Longer quarantine is associated with greater psychological distress, so the duration should be as short as possible and at the same time psychological impact need to be addressed.
With the same purpose our Journal “Acta Psychopathologica” is announcing Special issue Call for paper on “Psychological effects during self-quarantine”. We welcome both solicited and unsolicited submissions that will contribute to this special issue.
