Posttraumatic Growth: A Brief History and Evaluation
The authors provide a comprehensive look at PTG in research and practice, as well as areas for future PTG research.
Posttraumatic growth (PTG) as an area of research and practice, although often considered a construct within the positive psychology framework, preceded the definition of positive psychology by Seligman and Csikszentmihalyi. This chapter reviews the history of this concept, contributions of the research literature to the understanding of the PTG process, areas that need to be explored and developed to deepen our understanding, and applications of PTG to interventions for trauma survivors.
