Core Tip

Core Tip: With the emergence of an increasingly fragmented and crisis-ridden world, sound containment and mentalization capacities are required. We provide a stepped multidimensional socioecological theoretical framework that serves as a heuristic reference model. The example of the pandemic crisis is transferable and related to other ecological approaches. Parameters for sustainable and enduring change processes are given.
