This Working Group will focus on Korean families with young children and how they cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, with special attention to the impact of social distancing. This group will explore the coping mechanisms (i.e., social support, resiliency) and vulnerabilities (i.e., parental stress, racial discrimination) as families survive the current situation. This project will provide invaluable implications for practice and policy.
