Emotional and psychological waves likely after return from COVID-19 isolation

People returning to work after a period of COVID-19 isolation may feel a series of emotional and psychological waves in the weeks and months that follow, according to a national expert in the field.

University of Tasmania isolation expert, Associate Professor Kimberley Norris, said there were strategies that could help at an individual and workplace level.

The University and Associate Professor Norris today launched a resource, 'The Path Back from Social Isolation []', to offer perspectives on what to expect and practical ways of supporting employees and each other through this period.

Associate Professor Norris, who has worked extensively with people returning from extreme environments such as Antarctica, along with FIFO workers in remote places, said reintegrating is traditionally the most difficult phase of the isolation experience - and its effects should not be underestimated.

'Returning to work and the community can mean increased anxiety, irritation, mood fluctuations and a loss of identity and respite for many,' Associate Professor Norris said.

'Workers may also experience increased cognitive load characterised by memory exhaustion, poor attention and concentration, as well as difficulties in planning and processing.'

'Reverse culture shock' and sensory overload at driving through peak hour traffic again and leaving the isolation of home for a busy workplace, will also be common.

Associate Professor Norris said people wouldn't be returning to 'normal' with most people's work lives ultimately looking quite different to the working life they had before.

'We will never truly go back to the way things were because of changes in societal norms, attitudes, behaviours and even in neural pathways in our brains,' she said.

There will be, for example, new hygiene and health considerations to incorporate in returning to work.

Consideration will also have to be given to the new social norms that have evolved during COVID -19, for example, will we ever shake hands again or come to work with a hay fever sniffle?

The possibility of further restrictions following secondary waves of the pandemic, may also affect people's adjustment capabilities and work drive.

However, there are many strategies for supporting employees through the experience of reintegration with the key to success being an informed and slow transition to the 'new normal'.

'With Antarctic workers for example, reintegration and adjustment from isolation can take a year or more,' Dr Norris said.

Research Themes

Kimberley's research aligns to the University of Tasmania's theme of Better Health. Her research interests include adaptation and resilience in both extreme (e.g. Antarctica, space, FIFO) and more normative (e.g. academic) environments. Kimberley's research in this area has resulted in appointment as an Associate Member for the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research (SCAR) Joint Expert Group on Human Biology and Medicine. Kimberley is looking to develop new and innovative ways to provide psychological support for individuals in remote, rural, maritime and extreme environments at an individual, organisational, and familial level.

Kimberley is also an active researcher in supporting parents of children with mental health issues, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Downs Syndrome. More recently, Kimberley's research interests have expanded to include methods for assessment and intervention in family violence, and assessment and intervention for cognitive and behavioural difficulties experienced by preterm children throughout their academic lives.

From an academic perspective, Kimberley's research focuses on achievement behaviour as well as teaching and learning innovations in university contexts.

Collaboration

Kimberley maintains collaborations with national and international researchers focused on human health and performance in Antarctica.

Agricultural Innovation Hubs Program (2022 - 2023)$2,499,999
Description
The University of Tasmania hosts one of eight Drought Resilience Adoption and Innovation Hubs established across Australia under the Commonwealth's Future Drought Fund. Hubs are intended to be enduring institutions. The current proposal is about the Commonwealth's call to expand the Hubs' remit to service four priority areas under the National Agricultural Innovation Agenda. If funded, the Hub in Tasmania will need to operate under two agreements: the current agreement for the 'Drought Hub' and a new agreement that is about developing the Hub's pathway to expansion, while continuing to deliver to the 'Drought Hub' under the current agreement. This proposal presents the Hub's Statement of Claims on its ability and commitment to deliver practical activities and a business case that supports the National Agricultural Innovation Agenda

The ISLAND Resilience Initiative: understanding health, resilience and bushfire preparedness in Tasmania (2022 - 2023)$56,260
Description
This project builds knowledge about bushfire risks among older people in Tasmania, with a focus on using this knowledge to increase bushfire preparedness. It will be of primary benefit to older people themselves, but this will flow on to families, communities and Tasmania as a whole: the 'Bushfires and Your Health' short course will be designed to be appropriate to adults of all ages and, in the future, will be made available to all adult Tasmanians. The project will also lay the foundation for a new understanding of specific mental and physical health risks associated with different types of bushfire exposure including vicarious trauma and stress. Insights about trauma and stress will be highly relevant to other natural disasters.

Development and Validation of a Sexual Assault Treatment Efficacy Tool (2021 - 2022)$10,000
Description
Background: The Tasmanian Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) offers services to those impacted by sexual violence. The demand for these type of services often exceeds the service capabilities. As a result, it is necessary to demonstrate the efficacy of the service outcomes to support applications for further resources. To date, there is no empirically validated tool to evaluate client treatment needs or outcomes. This is a substantial oversight and means that client treatment progress is not sufficiently measured, and treatment outcomes remain highly subjective. It also does not assist in providing targeted and relevant professional development opportunities.

Future Seas: Transforming Australia into a "Marine Knowledge Nation' (2019)$50,000
Description
We live in an age of staggering data availability, yet people around the world are becoming increasingly skeptical of science. Moreover, demands for natural resources continue to escalate and we need to manage these demands in the face of unprecedented environmental changes. Major transformations are needed to create a sustainable future for our state, region, country and the planet. A key challenge for environmental sustainability is identifying how to encourage the uptake of behaviors at individual, local and global scales - that will leverage greater environmental benefit.This proposal will examine:1.What are the key leverage points and associated processes for achieving an engaged and scientifically literate society, to underpin effective management of Australias marine resources?, and2.How can we adapt models of change that have successfully led to positive environmental behavior and stewardship in the recent past?
