Posttraumatic Growth, PTG, is positive changes after a trauma that changes everything. PTG occurs as we are going through the confusion, anger, and grief that trauma can cause. It is not something that happens after we recover from trauma, it happens as we are recovering. It makes recovery easier, faster, and improves how we handle trauma.
Recovering from trauma is a slow process. It is messy. Trauma pain makes us want to hurry the process, but healing happens on its own time frame. You can choose how you respond to trauma. PTG is a positive choice you can make.
After my 22 year-old son took his life in 2016, my world was turned upside-down. I felt alone, lost, and everything hurt. My recovery began with PTG. It provided the glimmer of hope that I needed as I groped and often failed to cope with my overwhelming grief. It is for these reasons that I am offering this group. Trauma is terrible, but life after trauma can be easier.
