Existential health – experience resonance and co-produce

March 2

Part I – from theory to co-producing health, in praxis

The extensive research on the existential, sometimes called spiritual, dimension of health has increased the recognition of its importance for health. But a challenge is to find efficient ways to include this dimension in secular- though multi-cultural health care systems, as the Swedish. Inspired by WHO, models for non-confessional existential health interventions for groups haven been tested with Mixed Method studies for health promotion and prevention. This work emerges from theories within, Public Health with the existential dimension; Psychology of Religion and Education and Human Resource Development (HRD).


Part II – existential group conversations with clients and healthcare professionals respectively

Two studies that explore two models of group conversations which have different aims: treatment and education. Different theoretical frameworks have been applied; in the client study the concept of doing, being, belonging, and becoming, whereas in the healthcare professionals practice architectures to understand what happened in the ongoing conversation groups. Our results highlight the significance of resonance and coproduction for both clients and healthcare professionals out of existential dimensions.

Being co-authors in each other’s studies we have had to be responsive and immerse ourselves in each other’s questions, data, and theoretical frameworks. Influenced by what we studied, existential conversations, a trusting and prestige less collaboration have emerged, and our preunderstandings have served to develop through “test speaking” instead of being controlled.
