Abstract
Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe emotional impact on those who have suffered from the disease, but also on their families. Secure attachment and social support can cushion or prevent these negative effects. The aim of the present study was to assess risk and protective factors in relatives of people affected by COVID-19. Method: After signing informed consent, we assessed participants (n=50) on psychopathology (SCL-90-R), attachment (CAA) and social support (MOS-SSS). Results: Family members who participated presented with emotional distress, insecure attachment bonds and moderate social support. Males and people with previous mental or physical health problems were more affected. Greater psychopathology was associated with insecure attachments and less social support. Discussion: The family is an active part of the illness and can be severely affected when one of their members get a coronavirus infection. Intervention programmes should be aimed at strengthening emotional and social support bonds
