OLIVEIRA, Wanderlei Abadio de et al. Adolescence in times of pandemic: Integrating consensus into a concept map. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.2, pp. 133-143. ISSN 1413-294X.

The spread of COVID-19 requires sanitary measures to safeguard lives. However, these measures can also cause health problems or exacerbate pre-existing mental health problems. In this study, we aimed to develop a concept map to measure the impact of the pandemic on adolescents caused by the new coronavirus. A theoretical study was developed based on the construction of a concept map and application of the Delphi Method. The data collected indicated that the sanitary measures of social distancing, school closures and domestic confinement bear socio-emotional impacts on adolescents. The pandemic can be considered a social determinant for mental health; although teens do not necessarily get sick, restrictions trigger the development of suffering and psychopathological symptoms conditions. The conceptual map developed made it possible to organize systemic thoughts about a dimension of the pandemic that is still little addressed scientifically: the adolescents' experience. Indicators of mental health and well-being in adolescence should also be considered in the pandemic combat.
