The analysis proposes a multidimensional approach to the intra-family changes that occurred during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are already multiple researches on changes in the population's behaviour towards consumption, the professional environment, the social and family environment. The pandemic period, through restrictions on reducing mobility, respect for social distance, stress and the loss of family members or friends produces psycho-social effects at the level of micro and macro groups. These are in turn concerted by the reduction of socio-cultural and religious elements. Following these changes, what would be the image of the post-covid family and community? Strengths and weaknesses of the pandemic's influence on the family can be highlighted. Thus, as strengths we can list systemic elements of aggregation of family members by consolidating and developing intense intra-family relationships especially between children and family, restoring families by reducing the migration phenomenon, highlighting professional flexibility and increasing empathic solidarity. As critical points, the research showed a poor training of the population in collecting and interpreting messages of general interest, an increase in delinquency, domestic violence, disease and mental instability but also the mortality rate. All these phenomena and social problems began in a very short period of time, they proved an interrelation of the effects produced which made it difficult to intervene, prevent and reduce the effects. The conclusion of the research suggests a more detailed analysis of the micro and macrofamily space to identify all the new aspects that appeared during the pandemic period. These would be necessary for all areas to optimize interventions and obtain good practice models.
