Abstract

Numerous alarming research are indicating the urgency to shed light on adolescents’ wellbeing during this pandemic crisis. Since qualitative and pedagogical literature on the topic is rather limited, this pilot study aims to investigate adolescents’ wellbeing through the eyes of education and health professionals working with them. In April 2021 three “image-elicited interviews” were conducted in order to stimulate narratives and storytelling using evocative illustrations as a stimulus. The results reveal a general tendency in adolescents towards negative emotions and self-closure, as well as difficulties in the relationship with themselves and the world around; professionals are worried about adolescents’ wellbeing.
