About this Research Topic
The goal of this Research Topic is twofold. First, to identify ways in which we could curb or ameliorate relational challenges in order to promote better relational experiences and, thereby, foster greater levels of wellbeing. Second, to identify ways in which we could best leverage on existing relationships and support networks to further enhance our wellbeing. We also welcome submissions that seek to deepen our understanding of the impact such relationships have on our wellbeing across groups and societies.
We welcome submissions across a wide array of fields to shed light on these issues. We anticipate articles that focus on relationships at the individual level (interpersonal) and/or the group level (intergroup); this includes studies expounding upon the effects of mere group identity or social identity. These should be studied in relation to pertinent aspects of wellbeing, including but not limited to life satisfaction, job satisfaction, affective experiences, mental health, and/or physical health. It then follows that studies can be in the context of workplace and organizations, broad day-to-day life, and/or culture, society and policy-related.
