COVID-19 pandemic situation has changed individuals` everyday life in many aspects. The ”Stay-at-Home” order has affected daily routines, caused lack of social interaction, changed life roles and diminished psychosocial well- being.

Practical tools for responding to changed challenges

This Bachelor's level course is offered by JAMK School of Health and Social Studies and it provides perspectives on what COVID-19 pandemic situation means for professionals in rehabilitation and social work, and gives practical tools how to respond to the changed challenges.

The students learn how the pandemic has challenged the meaningful everyday activities of individuals. They understand the influences on rehabilitation and consultation practices, and how to support the well-being during the “Stay-at-Home” -period.
