≪Organizer Abstract≫
Personal factors are important to health and wellbeing in that they are both the most closely related to both achieved and aspired health status beyond what is possible taking into account environmental influences alone. Yet, their assessment is "left to the user, if needed" (WHO, 2001, p. 19). This symposium proposes to address the evidence for the importance of personal factors for health recovery in a broad range of populations with vulnerability. The specific objectives of the symposium are to:
1) Characterize qualities of personal factors for health recovery.
2) Map the antecedents and enablers of personal factors for health recovery across populations and contexts.
3) Operationalize key constructs for rehabilitation interventions for optimal health recovery premised on modifiable personal factors.
4) Apply ICF participation concepts to personal coping with environmental threats to health and wellbeing.
