1 Scopus citations


In this chapter, the authors ask how to broaden the salutogenic paradigm’s scope into an interdisciplinary framework and include other social concepts in its research. As one example of such interdisciplinary research, the authors review some new studies in conflict areas investigating intergroup relations. By relating to such areas of research, they try to address not only the “classic” question - who copes successfully and stays healthy - but also other salutogenic questions such as “who expresses more openness to the other?".
