Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Children, young people, school leaders and teachers have experienced multiple and multi-dimensional transitions during the Codid-19 pandemic. This event will allow researchers to present their emerging research findings.

We conceptualise transitions to be on-going, synchronous and multidimensional. Transitions for individuals also result in transitions for their families, other people and institutions (Jindal-Snape, 2012). We understand transitions to be the adaptation to change, rather than the change itself. This event will support delegates to understand the ways in which Covid-19 has resulted in different transitions for individuals and the impact of these transitions on their mental health and wellbeing. We will consider the factors which act as a buffer to negative transitions which protect individuals from mental ill health. We will consider the implications for future research, policy and practice which arise from the research findings.
