about this item

Comprehensive resource that focuses on the origins of health rather than the origins of disease (pathogenesis). It traces the history and development of the Salutogenic Model, from Aaron Antonovsky's groundbreaking scholarship to the present day. The book examines the key concept of salutogenesis, Sense of Coherence (SOC) and the factors that mediate SOC and health. Bringing together leading scholars from the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), this book aims to answer the question: where has over three decades of research and scholarship brought the Salutogenic Model of Health? Chapters look at the role of culture in the development of salutogenesis and the development of SOC over the life course. A key section summarizes the research in salutogenesis in the non-English literature and a section on research resources contains information on salutogenesis bibliographies, databases, organizations and web sites.
