About this book


New and current approaches to organizational health intervention research are the main focus of this comprehensive volume. Each chapter elaborates on the respective intervention researcher’s concept of a healthy organization, his/her approach to changing organizations, and how to research these interventions in organizations. As a common ground, the book consistently relates to the notion of salutogenesis, focusing on resources and positive outcomes of health-oriented organizational change processes. Out of the virtual dialogue between the chapters, common themes and potential trends for the future are identified.​
