Professor Veronica Lamarche from the Department of Psychology will give a lecture as part of the Essex Explores series on 'Love in the time of COVID: The importance of our relationships in uncertain times'.

The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown initiatives have had a profound impact on daily-life. For many, their romantic relationships have been at the centre of these changes. Amidst this tremendous disruption, partners continue to expect love, care and responsiveness from one another, perhaps even more so than usual. What is it about romantic relationships that leads people to expect so much from one another, even amidst periods of uncertainty? And what can we do to maximise the benefits we get from our close relationships? Dr Veronica Lamarche from the Department of Psychology will discuss how our relationships can either be an amplifier for, or a salve against the feelings of uncertainty and vulnerability many are experiencing at the moment. This talk will draw explore the importance of relationships, how we find safety in the arms of our loved ones, and how a world turned upside down through can shift the way some people feel about their close relationships – for better or for worse.
