Abstract This chapter focuses on some emerging ideas that are stimulated by, or relevant to, the salutogenic model of health. This is also the subject, in part at least, of other chapters in this book. Therefore, the developments discussed here are meant to supplement the other contributions. The salutogenic model of health is a useful foundation for thinking about and describing departures from traditional risk factor thinking. This is evident in assets models in health promotion and the Health Development Model, which is unique in its attractive amalgamation of pathogenesis and salutogenesis. Fortigenesis makes room for health-as-well-being. The Margin of Resources Model has relevance for development of the salutogenic model of health, even if the two are not explicitly linked. Closer to the health promotion area is the Self-tuning Model of Self-care, developed by health promotion scholars, and actually used to guide intervention. The use of the Positive Deviance approach to intervention has significant potential to direct action research to exploit the links between resistance resources, the sense of coherence, and health.
