Hart, K.E., Wilson, T.L., Hittner, J.B. (2006) A psychosocial resilience model to account for medical well-being in relation to sense of coherence, Journal of Health Psychology, 11:6, 857-862.

We tested the suggestion that Sense of Coherence (SOC) may enhance medical well-being by virtue of a favorably balanced profile of psychosocial assets relative to liabilities. Results derived from a sample of 81 young adults who responded to a battery of inventories supported the Psychosocial Resilience Model. Our findings provide preliminary evidence to suggest that a favorable balance between psychosocial ’protective’ and ’risk’ factors may, in part, help explain why people with a strong SOC enjoy high levels of medical well-being.
