Abstract

This chapter aims to raise some new directions in the framework of the salutogenic paradigm developing the possibility of its interdisciplinarity. We suggest that salutogenic questions should be asked not only about health and well-being, but also in the context of other aspects of life, such as social relations. In this chapter, we review the very few studies related to the connections between sense of coherence, social relations, and intergroup relations. The chapter includes a discussion of theoretical and methodological challenges in these new directions of research in the framework of salutogenesis.
