Abstract

On March 14, 2020, the Spanish Government declared a state of alarm to face the health emergency situation caused by the rapid evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic. The greatest impact of the restrictions, due to the lack of contact with the main areas of socialization, has been on childhood and adolescence. The increase in the rates of family violence and the abusive consumption of gambling and / or pornography show the need to reinforce family prevention measures1,2. A review of the main family prevention measures applied in Spain was carried out and complementary measures identified at the international level are proposed. Much of the Spanish prevention measures are tertiary in nature. Telephone psychological support was the most widely applied measure. The need to prevent infant-juvenile risks in confinement, aimed at enhancing family skills, is concluded.
