PsycPORT.com: Traumas can lead to spiritual growth

PsycPORT.com | Traumas can lead to spiritual growth:

It is arguable that Post-Traumatic Growth is a central theme to the book of Job, and it is a tale that is highly regarded by Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Another side of trauma–not to over-simplify it, not to ignore the pain or the damage many experience in trauma, but to show that it’s not one-sided:

There is, however, a flip side to trauma that mental health professionals only recently have begun to take a closer look at. It is called Post-Traumatic Growth, which is a fancy way of spinning an old cliche; “That which does not kill you makes you stronger.”

There are five main areas of personal growth that people talk about after traumatic events, Tedeschi said. They are spiritual growth, improved sense of self, enhanced relationships, a general appreciation of the value of life and being set on a positive new life course or new life path.
