Children and young people are particularly affected by the pandemic. Peer contacts are missing, the burdens of parents are perceived and there is a lack of positive stimuli for healthy development.
How is it possible to strengthen children’s resilience? Which individual and social protective factors need to be taken into account? What can parents do, what can the state or society do?

Prof. Dr. Susanne Walitza, psychiatrist, psychologist and Director of the Clinic for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Zurich.

Prof. Dr. Christina Stadler, Head Psychologist of the Clinic for Children and Adolescents, University Psychiatric Clinics Basel

In cooperation with W. Kohlhammer Verlag – Books for Science and Practice.
