Risk and Resilience during COVID-19 - Impact of the Pandemic on Family Functioning and Mental Health

Initiative: Corona Crisis and Beyond – Perspectives for Science, Scholarship and Society (beendet)
Bewilligung: 10.12.2020
Laufzeit: 1 Jahr 6 Monate


While the COVID-19 pandemic affects virtually everyone in one way or another, some will suffer from negative long-term effects on their social functioning, well-being and mental health but some will not. Adverse childhood experiences significantly affect mental health- and social functioning-related risk and resilience and are likely to influence coping with the challenges of the pandemic. Adding the perspective of traumatic experiences during and after lock down, this study will provide urgently needed data for a more nuanced debate on cost and benefits of pandemic-associated measures - for the current pandemic and potential future scenarios.
