Le restrizioni connesse alla gestione dell’emergenza sanitaria hanno inciso profondamente sulle opportunità di crescita dei minori, colpendo maggiormente i gruppi sociali più vulnerabili, come le famiglie a basso reddito e i bambini. Se i genitori home-workers hanno dovuto fronteggiare maggiori difficoltà di conciliazione, i caregiver che hanno perso il lavoro o subito una netta riduzione del reddito hanno vissuto un disagio economico e psicologico, che continua ad impattare sulla qualità delle relazioni familiari. L’analisi psico-sociologica delineata dal presente contributo cerca di mettere in luce gli effetti diretti e indiretti dell’emergenza sull’organizzazione del lavoro e sulla vita di minori e famiglie e pone l’attenzione sull’esigenza di promuovere il benessere individuale e professionale, attraverso la sperimentazione di misure e interventi innovativi nella fase di ripartenza.;

Keywords:post-pandemia; impatti su minori e famiglia; lavoro e concilia-zione; benessere e welfare.
