2020, 39 (3):
During the outbreak of COVID-19, colleges students are required to stay at home and learn online. This new situation has imposed such challenges to college students as information overload, trauma stress, psychological changes, crisis of trust, safety of going abroad, and employment. This paper provides the understanding of epidemic situations and information of the major events during the epidemic periods from the perspective of TCM specialists. Together with the past experiences of epidemic psychological impacts on college students, this paper highlights the outstanding contributions of medical staff in fighting against epidemics, emphasizes the party’s strong leadership and the unity of the people during the epidemic outbreak, and stresses the significant role TCM in battling the epidemic. Guided by the above principles, colleges students are facilitated to adjust their attitudes, re-identify their goals, reconstruct their habits to get rid of negative emotions. Besides, stories of those dedicated people and their bravery deeds should be gathered, designed into course cases in combination with TCM knowledge. The author believes that the implementation of well-designed courses will not only enhance students’ enthusiasm for TCM, sense of national pride, and their self-esteem, but also stabilize their state of mind, as well as restoring their optimistic and positive learning state.
