Post-traumatic growth (PTG) is a phenomenon that results in positive psychological change after the experience of a traumatic event. “A traumatic event is an experience that causes physical, emotional, psychological distress or harm. It is an event that is perceived and experienced as a threat to one’s safety or to the stability of one’s world” (NIH, 2013). A traumatic event may include: death of a family member, car accident, serious illness, natural disaster or war. This presentation will review PTG fundamental concepts, current research, and clinical implications. We will discuss the different forms of post-traumatic growth and its general process model. We will also explain how to use post-traumatic growth in psychotherapy with various populations.
