Abstract: Welcome to this edition of the International Journal of Emotional Education which is focused on the promotion of mental health and social and emotional learning in schools. We present five papers dealing with these issues in the diverse international contexts of Australia, Japan, Malta and the United Kingdom. The first paper by Helen Cowie (UK) presents a comparative study of the contemporary phenomenon of cyberbullying amongst young people in the UK and Japan. The paper underlines the need to address the multidimensionality of cyberbullying in seeking to prevent and reduce this problem, and presents various strategies in how this may be effected. In the second paper, Helen Askell-Williams and her colleagues (Australia) write about KidsMatter, a mental heath promotion, prevention and early intervention initiative in Australian primary schools. The authors explore ways in which mental health promotion initiatives are implemented in schools, and emphasize the ways in which the effective delivery of such interventions take account of the contextual features of the schools where they are being implemented.
