Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Genetics and Modern Environmental Factors Influencing Psychiatric and Psychological Diseases and Disorders
This Special Issue of Advances in Health, Social Psychology, and Psychiatry is intended to provide a medium for the prompt publication of scientific contributions concerned with all aspects of the epidemiology of physiological and psychiatric disorders—social structure and mental health, biological and genetic. In addition, this Special Issue has a particular focus on the effects of social conditions upon behaviour and the relationship between psychiatric disorders and the social environment.
This Special Issue is thus devoted to the application of medical and health theories and research from social psychology and psychiatry toward a better understanding of the human brain and its adaptation and adjustment, including both the alleviation of psychological and psychiatry problems and distress (e.g., psychopathology).
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) traditionally defined psychopathology (e.g., depression), emotional and behavioral problems and disorders in living (e.g., conflicts and failure of close relationships), the enhancement of subjective well-being (social and psychological considerations and seizure disorders are examples). and the processes of psychological change in everyday life (e.g., self-regulation) and professional settings (e.g., psychotherapy and counseling).
Articles reporting the results of theory-driven empirical research are given priority, but theoretical articles, review articles, clinical case studies, and essays on professional issues are also welcome. Articles describing the development of new scales (personality or otherwise) or the revision of existing scales are not appropriate for this journal.
Contributions may be of a clinical nature provided they relate to social issues, or they may deal with specialised investigations in the fields of social psychology and psychiatry, sociology, epidemiology, medical and health service research, and public mental health. We will publish papers on cross-cultural and trans-cultural themes.
