Post traumatic growth refers to the courage, resilience and compassion that may

develop in the self after trauma. There is a natural trajectory towards healing that may be strengthened by the support of therapy, and the empathy and kindness of others.

 

Sometimes the experience of trauma and the subsequent healing process can foster a deep and long lasting sense of compassion for the self and others and reveal a new found daring which translates into a choice to give to the world and to achieve new goals.

 

 

Suffering that has been endured, grieved and healed (though these may be life long processes) can become a place of resource that contributes to the well being of self and the world.
