Co-Constructing the Coronavirus: Understanding Families’ Relational Experiences of a Global Pandemic


The aim of this research is to establish a greater understanding of how Canadian families experience the COVID-19 pandemic, and whether these experiences are informed by their established interaction patterns. Findings will be distributed to researchers and mental health practitioners to better support disaster survivors, and contribute to a children’s book for family survivors of disaster. This research project is to meet the dissertation requirements of the researcher’s PhD program in counselling psychology.
