Salutogenesis is a term coined by sociologist Aaron Antonovsky. The term describes a medical approach focusing on factors that support human health and well-being, rather than on factors that cause disease (pathogenesis). More specifically, the salutogenic model is concerned with the relationship between health, stress, and coping. The concept of sense of coherence (SOC) was also put forward by
Sense of Coherence (SOC-13)
The Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI) measures two pervasive, independent dimensions of personality, Extraversion-Introversion and Neuroticism-Stability, which account for most of the variance in the personality domain. Each form contains 57 “Yes-No” items with no repetition of items. The inclusion of a falsification scale provides for the detection of response distortion. The traits measured are Extraversion-Introversion
Today at the 2017 Wired Business Conference in New York, Hölze explained that even with its enormous resources, Google has had to find ways to economize its operations in order to meet its ambitious goals. Most recently, he said, the company was forced to start building its own artificial intelligence chips because the company’s existing infrastructure just wouldn’t cut it.
Integrating Phenomenological and Neurobiological Models to Enhance Prediction of Adult Psychopathology and Suicidality
In recent years, there have been substantial advancements in research describing the neurobiological underpinnings of mental disorders and suicidality. The goal of this article is to assimilate the prevailing genetic markers, molecular signatures, neurochemical substrates, and patterns of brain activation to rectify current theoretical models of suicidal behavior. Using data from the Epidemiologic Catchment Area
A variety of mechanisms have been proposed which link suicide risk factors and behavior, including psychache, thwarted belongingness, and escape from self, among others. While strong evidence for the predictive power of these variables exists, it remains unclear why these proximal mechanisms are systematically linked to seemingly maladaptive outcomes (i.e., suicidal behavior) across individuals.
