(Sense Of Coherence)
Often we point out the problems and the mishaps in our social lives. The patogene processes are thus often in focus. Aaron Antonovsky (1923-1994) presented his model for the salutogene processes: the person’s ability deal with stress and promote health. Central in this are the concepts of manageability, comprehensibility and meaning. Antonovsky had studied how some persons became sick under stress and others could cope with stress.
(salus (Latin) = health, genesis (Greek) = origine)
The 3 Components of SOC
to understand, to see that what is experienced, from the inner and the outer, is coherent, clear and structured
to know how to manage, to do, to see what resources can be used to handle the situation, to cope and solve problems and not see them as burdens
to see the meaning of the situation, the experienced and thus have an inner motivation

The umbrella below is from Bengt Lindström, Monica Eriksson and Peter Wikström and is put here to make it possible to follow up the SOC concept more in detail and relate it all to personal ideas and experiences.
