There are possibilities of growth even in those who have suffered greatly. Coping with trauma and aiming towards recovery are the usual goals of trauma focused therapies. Post Traumatic Growth is ‘a positive transformation that goes far beyond recovery and coping. This session introduces the concept of Post Traumatic Growth, and encourages a nuanced approach so as not to create expectations for posttraumatic growth in all trauma survivors, and to instead promote a respect for the difficulty of trauma recovery while allowing for the exploration of possibilities for various kinds of growth even in those who have suffered greatly.
