Journal on Education in Emergencies: Volume 7, Number 2
The JEiE Special Issue on Psychosocial Support and Social and Emotional Learning in Emergencies offers a snapshot of the strategies and tools being developed and used to understand the status of wellbeing and psychosocial support in humanitarian contexts and the effectiveness of EiE programming that incorporates PSS and SEL principles. This issue presents evidence of the progress being made in creating, validating, and using new, culturally relevant measures of mental health and wellbeing among students living in situations of crisis and conflict, and among the teachers, caregivers, and community members on whom these young people rely.
JEiE Volume 7, Number 2 includes six research articles, three field notes, two book reviews, and one commentary. The authors who contributed to this issue work at 30 institutions based in more than 12 countries. Together they advance our understanding of how psychological health, emotional wellbeing, social cohesion, and education are linked. They also reinforce the notion that schools are important sites for protecting children from the emotional trauma and psychological harm wrought by conflict and crisis. Schools can offer students a sense of stability, dignity, accomplishment, and hope in their daily lives, provide nurturing care and opportunities for play, and serve as a staging ground for the provision of services and resources, including mental health resources.
