Our work with organisations is based on the principles of salutogenic theory, as defined by Aaron Antonovsky. Salutogenesis means ‘origin of health’and focuses on fostering health and cohesion within individuals, systems and organisations, rather than simply reducing stress.
In detail, the focus is on helping individuals within the group to find a sense of cohesion for themselves and the group. This sense of cohesion is fostered by allowing individuals and the organisation to develop a sense of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulnessin what they do and who they are. As clinicians, we believe that these three above aspects and a sense of cohesion are vital for emotional stability and growth in a global society and organisational settings. They can function as positive motivators/ stimuli, science indicates positive motivators are both more and effective and healthier than negative motivators/stimuli.
If you would like us to deliver a workshop to tackle stress or build resilience based on this holistic model of health, please contact us.
