Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, societies and the people within them have had to face stressful events of great magnitude. These unexpected situations have forced people to make precipitous decisions, and, on many occasions, they have also been forced to change their lives without having planned for it or having other options.

There are several behavioral changes associated with this type of situation that can generate a conflict between the person and society, or in the way in which people decide to relate to their environment. Since the emergence of COVID-19, social behaviors have been altered around the world, with irrational fears emerging that have precipitated decision making and the development of new forms of communication and entertainment. It is important for social psychology to try to determine whether these sociological phenomena, which appeared for an exceptional reason, will remain part of social life. The following topics are proposed for this Special Issue:

  • Behaviors associated with coping with stressful events;
  • New modes of social communication or entertainment;
  • Relationship between the new behaviors assumed by certain sectors of society and the appearance of psychological mood disorders;
  • Mental health associated with the behavioral changes that have occurred;
  • Psychological and physiological well-being associated with new social phenomena;
  • Impact of COVID-19 in education;
  • Impact of COVID-19 in teenagers.
