Building on Monica Hanaway’s previous publications, this timely volume considers the benefits of bringing an existential approach to psychotherapy, coaching, supervision and leadership, particularly in times of crisis.

The book uses an existential lens to examine the impact Covid-19 has had on our mental health and ways of being, making connections between situations that challenge our mental resources and the unique ways existential ideas can address those challenges. Featuring contributions from renowned existential thinkers and practitioners, the book connects personal experiences with clinical examples and philosophic ideas to explore concepts like anxiety, relatedness and uncertainty as they relate to key existential themes, helping to inform coaches and therapists in their work with clients.

Existentialism in Pandemic Times is important reading for coaches, therapists, psychologists and business leaders, as well as for scholars and researchers interested in applied philosophy.

Reviews and Endorsements

'With this latest book Monica Hanaway and her chapter authors offer us a further brilliant insight into the power and relevance of the existential and phenomenological lens. Since the start of the pandemic, we have all faced numerous challenges, as well as some potential unseen gifts. In response, this book sensitively and intelligently helps to ground these experiences initially in theory, then with client case studies, before looking at wider implications and lessons for society and business. As a consequence, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It speaks to all that are ready to listen.' - Jamie Reed, Team and Leadership Coach, Director of Human leadership Ltd.

'Monica is uniquely placed to write this book as an internationally renowned practitioner whose work is founded on existential principles. Her expertise as both a therapist and a coach inform key issues that illuminate the range of challenges experienced by people and businesses alike. An impressive breadth of contributing authors helps us understand the existential threat of the pandemic, how people regain a sense of equilibrium, and possible opportunities for growth, purpose, and authenticity.' - Dr. Mark Burgess, Research Lead and Teaching Fellow (Social Psychology), Oxford Brookes University, Oxford.

'This is a hugely fascinating book offering a range of insights from seasoned and well-regarded deliberators on both their personal and professional lived-experience of the Covid pandemic. It is important in times of such overwhelming existential peril for leading thinkers in the academic and professional world to disclose their experiences by writing about and describing their own angst, dependencies, disconnectedness, physical reaction, sense of time, being and freedom – or deprivation of – extraordinary thinkers thinking about extraordinary times. The potential for this book to become an exemplar of philosophical critique, phenomenological account, and authentic reflection of living through the pandemic presents itself with this range and collection of writers.' - Prof John Nuttall, Asst Dean and Head of School of Psychotherapy and Psychology, Regent’s University London. Certified Management Consultant.
