Why the exaggerated hamstering of toilet paper makes sense - at least psychologically

 Why the exaggerated hamstering of toilet paper makes sense - at least psychologically It's that time again: For the second time this year, people are starting to pounce on products that don't actually have a particularly sexy reputation: toilet paper above all, but for example also cleaning agents or wet wipes. But this buying behavior is not as absurd as it seems at first glance. Because the fact that we are hoarding certain goods in the corona crisis , which is worsening again, is partly due to an innate fear.

Even before the current crisis, many of us worked from home, and relied on technology to keep us connected (Credit: Reuters). In a fascinating Philosophy Talk podcast, philosopher Charles Scott notes that the word normal possesses a certain kind of authority or “power to divide and distinguish things”.

If you are hardened in the beginning then you become even harder , you become even colder. Evidence suggests that the longer and harsher the prison sentence – the more likely that prisoners’ personalities will be changed (Credit: Alamy).

Les Français s'apprêtent à revivre, au moins pour quatre semaines, un nouveau confinement après celui du printemps. Mais contrairement aux deux mois sous cloche de mi-mars à mi-mai, les restrictions actuelles devraient être plus difficiles à supporter, selon la psychologue clinicienne Catherine Tourette-Turgis. © MARTIN BUREAU / AFP The French are preparing to relive, at least for four weeks, a new confinement after that of spring. But unlike the two months under cover from mid-March to mid-May, the current restrictions should be more difficult to bear, according to clinical psychologist Catherine Tourette-Turgis.

The fear of many French people was confirmed on Wednesday evening, at 8:15 p.m.: faced with the extremely rapid progression of the coronavirus , Emmanuel Macron announced a general re-containment of the population for at least four weeks , with the possibility of seeing these movement restrictions last longer . What impact will this confinement have on a society already marked by the first confinement of spring? To discuss it, Catherine Tourette-Turgis, psychologist, sociologist and professor at Sorbonne University, was the guest of Europe 1, Thursday morning.

WHO has sounded the alarm again: "too many countries" in the northern hemisphere are recording an exponential increase in Covid-19 cases.

According to Catherine Tourette-Turgis, six months after the end of the first confinement, "we have like a relapse". "We could clearly see in September that there was less anxiety, less depression, etc. But there, we must resume this painful treatment which is the fact of returning, even if the restrictions are lightened, to confine oneself."

"Relapse effect"

However, it would be illusory to think of reliving the same thing as in spring, because of this "relapse effect": "It could not be the same", says the specialist. First, there may not be parties for the caregivers, who are exhausted. Sick people are sometimes blamed on the theme of 'You knew how to protect yourself'. It's going to be different, complex. "

 Coronavirus: Italy advances the closing time for bars and restaurants SANT-CORONAVIRUS-ITALY: Coronavirus: Italy advances the closing time for bars and restaurants © Reuters / GUGLIELMO MANGIAPANE CORONAVIRUS: THE ITALY ADVANCES BARS AND RESTAURANTS CLOSING TIME MILAN (Reuters) - Italy on Sunday ordered bars and restaurants to close at 6 p.m. and public sports venues, swimming pools and cinemas to close in an attempt to curb a new wave of contamination with the new coronavirus.

People in quarantine are likely to develop symptoms of psychological stress and disorder and the scale of the current COVID-19 lockdown is unprecendented. Lockdown is the world's biggest psychological experiment - and we will pay the price. What will the psychological impact be for 2.6

Containment becomes realistic only when Americans realize that working together is the only way to protect themselves and their loved ones. The virus would die out on every contaminated surface and, because almost everyone shows symptoms within two weeks, it would be evident who was infected.

The tone of the chef de the state has also changed: from the very military "we are at war" of the spring, Emmanuel Macron preferred to say that France was "submerged" by the second wave of coronavirus. "This creates a psychological climate of natural disaster", according to Catherine Tourette-Turgis, according to whom "the risks of depression and collapse" are notable with a "feeling of loss of control of the health system." She also underlines the "open door to inventiveness and social creativity ", insisting on the" lack of narrative "of the executive for ai der the French: “There is no narrative.”

The key to prevention

Under these conditions, how can we handle it psychologically? On confinement, "all the studies show that we must be present, accompany, support, care, set up tele-intervention (we speak of tele-therapy), whatever it is that could be good for the person ", insists the psychologist. For her, "we get there through community work", with the efforts of "everyone in their social group, in their building", etc.

Emphasis must also be placed on prevention, with the need to "humanize it, individualize it, differentiate it and invent it". "If we want to motivate, we have to make people dream about prevention," said Catherine Tourette-Turgis, calling for "stories on how to manage to implement prevention to the point of oblivion. A prevention that walking is prevention that is becoming systematic. We are not there yet. "
