Social transformations have contributed to generating new transformations in children and adolescents’ development within the main socialization contexts: family, peers, school, and communities. For instance, the uses of the internet and social networking sites as communication tools have changed how they move quickly from the real world to the virtual world and vice versa. Consequently, maladjustment problems also show this continuity among online and offline scenarios. The growing complexity of our social reality is rapidly revealing new challenges in the lives of children, and all this challenges the influence of family, school, and community contexts.
On the other hand, these new challenges have become a subject of concern and interest from various fields, such as psychological, educational, social, health, and professional, in general, as well as from the research perspective in school and community contexts, especially during COVID-19, which has become one of the strongest stressors for children and adolescents. For this reason, a growing set of studies focused on children and adolescent new challenges are necessary for healthy development.
This Topical Collection, therefore, aims to provide ideas for psychologists and other professionals that will allow them to respond to the demands of social and educational institutions, in order to promote children and adolescents’ wellbeing.
This Topical Collection is open to high-quality contributions on the study of healthy development, especially those focused on children and adolescents and their socialization contexts. We invite authors to contribute research that addresses the influence of social determinants in adolescent adjustment and adaptation to this new environment.
