In this chapter, the authors propose integrating two paradigms - positive psychology and salutogenesis - and suggest a joint conceptual framework, which they term as ‘salutogenic positive psychology’. Despite the differences between the two movements and their different theoretical roots, the authors believe that the integrative approach has greater utility in advancing psychological research on mental health and well-being.
