Finding our New Normal: A conversation with psychologist Dr. Edward Amend

About 6 months ago, life changed drastically, as coronavirus affected each of us in different ways. As schools and businesses closed, uncertainty became a way of life. Today, as a new school year begins, COVID-19 remains ever-present in the news and in our lives. How do we make sense of an uncertain world? How do we move forward, creating healthy routines to keep ourselves mentally healthy? Join us for an informative conversation as we discuss healthy ways to find a new normal.

Edward R. Amend, Psy.D., a Clinical Psychologist at The Amend Group ( in Lexington, KY, is licensed to practice in Kentucky and Ohio. Dr. Amend focuses on the social, emotional, and educational needs of gifted youth, adults, and their families. He co-authored two award-winning books: A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children and Misdiagnosis and Dual Diagnoses of Gifted Children and Adults (second edition). Dr. Amend has authored many articles, book chapters, and columns about gifted children. He presents locally and nationally on topics related to the needs of gifted children, and he is actively involved with NAGC, SENG, and KAGE.
