This chapter explains how the factors present in these types of urban neighbourhoods demonstrate new knowledge in the understanding of the person-environment relationship, for example, that the relationships between personal competences and environmental presses, and individual reports of well-being, are not always unidirectional. Rather, the relationship is complex and might be mediated by lifecourse and/or religion/spirituality. Moreover, temporal factors — the position of time: past, present, and future — also play an intervening role. This chapter also discusses a novel paradigm or rethink of the complexity of the relationship.

Keywords:   person-environment relationship, personal competences, environmental presses, well-being, lifecourse, religion, spirituality, time
