Introduction to the special issue on ‘Prevention and Social-Emotional Development in Childhood and Adolescence’

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

This special issue on Prevention and Social-Emotional Development in Childhood and Adolescence aimed to outline the growing conceptual and empirical connections between promotion of SED and the prevention of problem behaviour in children and adolescents. The general goal was to present studies that explore the meeting point between preventive interventions and different dimensions of SED while taking into account possible differences in age, culture, community, socio-economic status, and life circumstances. The studies included in the current Special Issue encourage progress along this path and demonstrate how SEL holds vital relevance for children’s development and for societal and community well-being.
