SILVA, Isabela Machado da et al. Family relations during COVID-19 pandemic: resources, risks e implications for the practice of marital and family therapy. Pensando fam. [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.1, pp. 12-28. ISSN 1679-494X.

The COVID-19 pandemic brings up macro-structural repercussions in economic, social, and work status, which may impact family and marital functioning. In the current paper, we focus on family resources and risks during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a narrative review of the literature, considering Brazilian as well as international studies, we present (a) marital relations, (b) coparental relations, (c) parental relations, and (d) implications for the practice of marital and family therapy in this scenario. Family and couple therapists may work to strengthen aspects such as cohesion, flexibility, and communication. The importance of attributing meaning to the pandemic and the lived experiences as well as maintaining hope in the face of challenges are emphasized, whereas the establishment of a more equal division of household labor is encouraged. We discuss the relevance of enhancing strategies to optimize resources that promote healthy family relationships.
