This article is an introduction to the special section of the Korean Journal of Clinical Psychology on the Post-COVID-19 response of clinical psychologists. COVID-19 is pushing us to respond to dramatic changes in multiple aspects of necessary life. In particular, as Korean clinical psychologists, we bear a strong public responsibility as clinicians and researchers to cope efficiently and in a timely fashion in facing this rapidly evolving environment. In this context, the Special Issue of Clinical Psychologists' Response to Post-COVID-19 in the Korean Journal of Clinical Psychology was planned to contribute to an accurate summation of the current activities of Korean clinical psychologists and to offer suggestions for the future. The present special issue of the Korean Journal of Clinical Psychology includes six articles focusing on our communities, digital phenotyping and digital therapeutics, the psychological impact of COVID-19, effective crisis intervention, and disability-inclusive community resilience. The articles were drafted by experienced Korean clinical psychologists. In addition, the report of the Post-Corona19 Committee, "Post-Corona19 Roadmap of the Korean Clinical Psychology Association," provides an overview of the workings of the committee. It is expected that the current special issue will be a valuable resource within and outside the Korean Clinical Psychology Association and confirm our status as a crucial professional group during and following the COVID-19 pandemic period.
