Discovering Post-Traumatic Growth

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Building your Resilience: Finding Meaning in Adversity

Discovering Post-Traumatic Growth

Taught by Professor Molly Birkholm | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

Those who can process their trauma can move forward to become stronger, wiser, and more resilient. Using Harriet Beecher Stowe as a fascinating example, you’ll learn how post-traumatic growth can lead to improved personal strength, the opening of new possibilities, spiritual change, and greater appreciation for life. We can become more resilient because of—not despite—adversity.
