Posttraumatic growth refers to positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges in order to rise to a higher level of functioning. These sets of circumstances represent significant challenges to the adaptive resources of the individual, and pose significant challenges to their ways of understanding the world and their place in it. Post-traumatic growth is not about returning to the same life as it was previously experienced before a period of traumatic suffering; but rather it is about undergoing significant 'life-changing' psychological shifts in thinking and relating to the world that contribute to a personal process of change that is deeply meaningful. It is often characterized by decreased reactivity and faster recovery in response to similar stressors in the future. This occurs as a result of exposure to the event and subsequent learning. According to Richard G. Tedeschi, one of the founders of the posttraumatic growth movement, as many as 90 percent of survivors report at least one aspect of posttraumatic growth, such as a renewed appreciation for life. Traditional psychology's equivalent to thriving is resilience, which is reaching the previous level of functioning before a trauma, stressor, or challenge. The difference between resilience and thriving is the recovery point. Thriving goes above and beyond resilience. Thriving finds benefits within challenges! Here to discuss how she works with trauma survivors to embrace change, take healthy risks, and increase self-compassion is Lisa Ferentz, LCSW-C, DAPA, a recognized expert in the strengths-based, de-pathologized treatment of trauma.
