In the current issue, which we pass on to you for reading and reflection, we continue the topical themes of the threats that we have come to experience. Thanks to researchers who undertake research related to pandemics, the plight of refugees, or climate change, we have an opportunity to be better prepared to face their consequences, including in the area of mental health care for both individuals and entire populations. Ronald M. Hernández and colleagues from Lima University and Tumbes University in Perú have just done a retrospective analysis of the number of studies that have included the Latin American population. They found that there was a lack of research on the prevalence of anxiety symptoms and disorders in this population in a number of Central and South American countries. Colleagues on the other side of the globe, from Jordan, found by assessing the personality traits of counselors supporting refugees that the big five personality factors explained (48.3%) as a statistically significant predictor of counselor's psychological hardiness. As one might guess, neuroticism was among these traits at the lowest level.
