This Research Topic is the second volume of the 'Community Series in Adaptation to Change and Coping Strategies: New Resources for Mental Health'. Please see the first volume here.

Today’s society is characterized by change, and sometimes the constant changes come at a rate difficult to assimilate. We have very little time to reorganize our cognitive schemes and adapt our behavioral repertoire to the demands of our environment. This may be the reason that feelings of frustration and defenselessness appear in the face of the impossibility of responding adequately to the requirements of a changing society.

In this process of readjustment and decision-making, some personal variables or resources become especially significant, and can be determinant in coping with change. We refer to changes of any type or magnitude, whenever the lack of adaptive response diminishes our development and wellbeing. Thus, an optimum, healthy approach to both changes of great magnitude, such as the pandemic, and smaller changes with a more individual impact, such as illness, or any circumstance that affects the configuration and functioning of our closest setting, is fundamental.

Several different disciplines are showing a growing interest in the study of stress management and coping with change.

This Research Topic is interested in the study of a wider range of variables involved in the process of change and adaptation. We are especially interested in analyses from a positive perspective, identifying variables that might be operating as protectors and that therefore, can be used in designing intervention programs to improve the process of adapting to change. We aim for this special issue to contribute to research in the field of adaptation to change, both with studies in the general population and those with more specific samples.

The analysis of a wide diversity of variables involved in the process of adaptation to change will enable new relationships to be identified, theoretical models to be updated and propose new models with a robust empirical basis. Thus, by updating knowledge and progressing in understanding the processes inherent to changing developmental environments, personal skills, resources and strategies for achieving balanced mental health can be developed.

We especially welcome high-quality original research and reviews/meta-analyses that provide robust findings that broaden current knowledge of (but not limited to) the following topics:

• Resilience
• Tolerance to uncertainty
• Coping strategies
• Stress management
• Emotion management
• Cognitive flexibility
• Alertness and control

Keywords: Resilience, Coping Strategies, Adaptation to Change, #CollectionSeries


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
