DELLAZZANA-ZANON, Letícia Lovato et al. Psychological effects of social distance caused by COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic over the life cycle. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.2, pp. 188-198. ISSN 1413-294X.

This study aimed to systematize information about the consequences of social distance along the different stages of the life cycle for people who were not infected by the virus, but who experience the indirect consequences of the pandemic. Through a narrative review, the results of recent research in different countries were systematized, as organized: effects of social distance for children and adolescents, effects of social distance for adults, effects of social distance for the elderly and effects of social distance for the occurrence of domestic violence, which proved to be a transversal theme to all stages of the life cycle. Recommendations are also presented for the management of the effects of social distance in different stages of human development.

Keywords : quarantine; pandemics; psychology; coronavirus; life cycle.
