Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic swept the world and changed the society structural order, including the smallest one, which was family. According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), many countries reported the increase of domestic violence cases during the pandemic. This was assumed to be caused by the policy of home-quarantine in order to sever the spread of COVID-19, resulting in the increase of the intensity of domestic violence. Data from the national commission for women and children also strengthened the assumption. This was also followed by the increase of numbers of divorce in families. Including how big the role of social support on family resilience was and which source of social support had the biggest affect on family resilience level in the pandemic. This research was conducted in Samarinda, using quantitative methods on 317 research subjects. Descriptively, 66.5% of family resilience in Samarinda was still considered to be high. The results of regression analysis with beta score = 0.542 and p = 0.000 (p < 0.05) indicated that social support could predict family resilience. The R square = 0.292 showed that the role of social support to family resilience was as big as 29.2%. Social support from the environment and close friends was more dominant compared to from extended family and other important figures such as counsellor or psychologists.
