COVID-19 : Your Health, Your Relationships

University of Calgary, Psychology

Université de Montréal, Département de psychologie

Université de Sherbrooke, Département de psychologie

This study has been designed to explore the possible ways that the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic may be affecting people’s relationships with members of their social networks (i.e., romantic partners, family, friends, coworkers, neighbours, etc.). As humans, we are social by nature and our connections with others help us meet needs for security and belonging. Stressors related to the pandemic may affect our relationships with others in ways that are important to understand. This study aims to investigate those effects in the Canadian context and is part of an international research project currently running in more than 30 countries worldwide.
