This issue of the Journal of Indian Health Psychology has six research articles that focus on the various aspects of health and illness. The articles in the current issue are based on either quantitative or qualitative methods with a critically oriented approach. The first article by Megha Singh, Arshi Islam, Farah Khan and Pallavi Bhatnagar explored the problem of sexual violence using a thematic analysis of the perceptions of youth. Pragya Verma and Archana Shukla, in the next article, discussed the efficacy of CBT in managing social anxiety in a 25-year-old pregnant woman. The next article in this issue by Gulgoona Jamal examined the heterogeneity of the “friendship network” of Indian young adults. The author found that males and females showed a fusion of heterogeneity and homogeneity in their “friendship network”, with males having a tilt towards heterogeneity and females towards homogeneity. The next article by Swaha Bhattacharya and Piyali Roy talks about the association of social relationships with health and well-being. Ganesan V and Ramakrishnan K S assessed the effect of behaviour technology in the enhancement of helping behaviour among students.
