Book Description
This text examines trauma from a new and encouraging perspective, suggesting that post-traumatic growth (PTG) and even thriving are possible after experiencing painful events. While Transcending Trauma is written primarily for health care professionals, all who are providing support to a survivor of any age will find the empirical evidence, practical guidance, anecdotes, and case studies valuable as they gently guide the trauma victim toward the resilient response necessary for post-traumatic growth.
