Aaron Antonovsky developed the salutogenic model during his years of work at Ben Gurion University in Israel. His model and ideas are very influential today in Israel, both in the area of research and in health and educational public policies. This chapter reviews the scientific literature on salutogenesis published in Hebrew between 1983 and 2014. There were 175 titles found that focus on the salutogenic model, most of which were master’s theses and doctoral dissertations in the social sciences. This review focuses on two branches of research which have made a significant contribution to updating salutogenic knowledge and have moved the field forward: research broadening the concept of coherence from the individual level to wider levels of analysis such as the family, the community, and the national level, as well as research focused on sense of coherence amongst children with learning disabilities.
