Few months ago, The University of Luxembourg launched a survey to compare the psychological effects of social distancing measures across Europe.
Previous research has shown that social isolation resulting from preventive measures has a substantial negative impact on mental health. Yet it remains unclear which factors predict the levels of psychological distress caused by social isolation. What role play factors such as our personality, resilience, health anxiety, and emotion regulation for the way we cope with the situation? What are the effects of our socio-economic and demographic characteristics (e.g. housing, living conditions, education, economic status, family composition) on health outcomes during confinement?

To answer these questions, the researchers created a survey of about 200 questions and are now looking for participants in Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and Sweden to answer their questionnaire at least twice.
Claus Vögele was invited on the radio channel 100.9 to discuss the first results of the survey.
