Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The past pandemic has led to changes in social–professional interactions and lifestyles. Habits have changed, some temporarily and others definitively, which has encouraged the investigation of new trends adopted in health and well-being. This is, for example, the case for the increased use of digital tools applied to multiple contexts. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide scientific evidence on patterns or changes in different areas and contexts (preferably in psychology, education sciences, social sciences, and law), without ruling out measures or trends adopted in the behavioral science or/and forensic contexts. Studies that contribute to clarifying social problems are fundamental within psychology and health.
