Many people experience and exhibit symptoms of PTSD following a traumatic event. But there are some individuals who, following the same kind of experience, do not simply return from a suffering state to a baseline of wellness, but rather, these individuals instead experience improvement that can be deeply meaningful. This positive psychological change is called Post Traumatic Growth. This presentation will discuss PTG and explore ways in which counselors in a variety of settings and cultures can encourage the factors that facilitate this growth.
