GARCIA-RODRIGUEZ, Jaqueline. The value of Cuban psychology in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2021, vol.43, n.6, pp. 1707-1712.  Epub 31-Dic-2021. ISSN 1684-1824.

Since the COVID-19 broke out as pandemic in 2020, the societies changed, and with them the sciences. Men and women from all branches of knowledge questioned the epistemological foundations of their knowledge, incapable of solving an unprecedented problem from their usual practices, given its extent and social implications. The absence of a definitive cure and the frequent modification of care protocols led to the deployment of strategies to fight the pandemic and contain its impact on people's subjectivity. Psychological science, far removed from elitist positions, reexamined its work in multiple fields to adapt to the new situation. This article presents criteria on the action of psychology, which confirm its value in the face of the pandemic by COVID-19. The responses of this science include clinical, health, social and educational psychology. The alternatives and interventions generated have not only made it possible to deal with the current situation, but are, to some extent, being advanced to prevent future effects.
