Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Physical education and psychomotricity play a very important role in the health of children and adolescents. The latest research and scientific studies reflect the evolution of the field and the growing interest in this area.

Despite this, there is a need to continue researching successful educational practices for health in physical education and psychomotricity in order to improve certain aspects, e.g., increase physical activity levels in children, prevent illness, promote motor skill development, and support mental health. Furthermore, some new successful educational practices for the health of children and adolescents have been developed in recent years, but their results are yet to be assessed.

Throughout this Special Issue, the aim is to disseminate quality research related to health promotion in physical education and psychomotricity. Further investigations of outcome measures would benefit children, adolescents, and their teachers.

We are pleased to invite you to submit original research (empirical, quantitative or qualitative) manuscripts, as well as systematic reviews or meta-analyses with evidence-based recommendations regarding outcomes of successful educational practices for health in physical education and psychomotricity. These are all welcome as long as they deepen and expand our understanding of physical education/psychomotricity. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Influence of physical activity on health;
  • Health and illness prevention;
  • Stress and mental health;
  • Obesity;
  • Rehabilitation;
  • Addictive behaviors;
  • Healthy habit development;
  • Successful educational practices for health;
  • Inclusive practices for children with illnesses.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
