  • Pathologize = Curative Focus


  • SALUTOGENESIS – The Study of the origins (genesis) of human health (salus). Salutogenic Model concerned with the relationship between health, stress, and coping. Resources help adaptation to psychosocial stressors with meaningfulness (participation, belonging, opportunity in work and service). Focuses on coherence and the role of stress in human functioning.
