Posttraumatic Growth: Theory, Research and Applications


Product Description

Published USA, 2018
It has been over twenty years since the term 'posttraumatic growth' (PTG) was coined by Richard Tedeschi and Lawrence Calhoun. In that time, these authors' pioneering work has helped posttraumatic growth become a flagship theme of positive psychology. This new book has been written by the leaders in the field and sets the agenda for theory, research and practice for the next twenty years. Chapters review quantitative, qualitative and cross-cultural research on PTG, including in relation to cognitive function, identity formation, cross-national and gender differences, and similarities and differences between adults and children.

Richard Tedeschi is a Professor of Psychological Science at the University of North Carolina.
