About this Journal
Continuity in Education is an open access, peer reviewed journal for the education of children and young people with medical and mental health needs.
In line with a biopsychosocial model of health, education and psychological development, the journal reports on different contexts, which may include education in a hospital community or home setting, in urban or rural areas, within different educational systems or structures, across different countries, jurisdictions, and socio-cultural settings, and during different life phases of the individual. The journal aims to focus on the interactions between education and human development in the fields of well-being, resilience, future life choices and opportunities, social and emotional well-being, cognitive and metacognitive learning strategies, and mental health improvement.
The journal is open to all contributions that deepen the concept of learning and education as protective factors in the life of young people facing adversities. The concept of continuity in education is also extended to education delivered in other contexts where children and families are living with some kind of disruptive event in their life.
