The Database

About the Database

University West, Department of Nursing, Health and Culture has in 2011 established the Center on Salutogenesis. We are today responsible for the a the website www.salutogenesis.hv.se. We are running a systematic and analytical research synthesis on salutogenic research 1992-up to date. The website is a continuation of a former one located in Helsinki, Finland. The new website is now in Swedish and in English.

We continuously update the sites including the database (only in English). However, to build up and keep it  updated is time consuming. Therefore we invite authors of scientific papers published in peer reviewed journals to join us in this task. Please fill in a review protocol (in English) of your study in line with the presented model. Please send your review protocol to the Responsible Editor of the website, Monica Eriksson. We will thereafter put the information into the Database. This is a possibility for Authors to spread their findings to all of us interested in the field of salutogenesis. Thank you for your cooperation!

Understanding the joint effects of family and other developmental contexts on the sense of coherence(SOC): A person-focused analysis using the Classification Tree.

Year
2013
Country
Spain
Sample
Adolescents
Aged 13 - 18
Mean age 15.43
Method
Cross-sectional, Questionnaire

Analysis
Aim
Identify meaningful constellations of contextual factors (quality of parent-child relationship, support from classmates and teachers, models of behaviour in the peer group and neighbourhood assets) that led to predominantly high and low levels of SOC
SOC Scale
SOC-29, 7-point Likert scale
Statistical data

(n, mean total SOC, mean the three dimensions, SOC division, correlates to other standardized measures, response rate)
N= 4943
SOC division (scores in a scale from 1 to 7): low = from 1 to 4.2069 (29.8%); medium = from 4.2070 to 4.8620 (33.9%); and high = from 4.8621 to 7 (36.2%)

Language
Spanish
Main result
The quality of parent–child relationships emerged as the main predictor of SOC for the whole sample, but the remaining factors also made significant contributions, which underlines the importance of the simultaneous analysis of the main contexts in adolescents’ lives. Additionally, the identified constellations usually included compensatory effects, so no factor should be considered to be completely determining. Interestingly, the role of
support at school was different depending on contextual profiles.
Limitations: Cross-sectional design does not allow drawing definitive conclusions about the direction of the relationships between the examined contextual factors and SOC. Only a specific facet of the relationships with peers is represented.
