Traumatic events, such as the death of a loved one, result in a period of grief, whereby surviving individuals work to process the loss and adjust to a new way of life.
Workshop and Open Discussion
As individuals move through grief, some find meaning in their loss that leads to their not just adjusting to it but growing through it. Termed “post traumatic growth” by researchers Tedeschi and Calhoun (1996), such growth through loss may be characterized by survivors experiencing a greater appreciation of life, closer relationships, increased sense of personal strength, awareness of new life goals, and/or spiritual development.
Overall, post traumatic growth reflects not just “bouncing back” from loss, but “bouncing forward” to a life with a deeper sense of purpose and increased level of functioning.
This presentation is appropriate for those who are grieving as well as professionals who support them.
