Published on Jan 1, 2013
Abstract
SUMMARY Trauma is defined as a real threat of death or death itself, emergence of a threat to the physical integrity of life, and the person can not overcome the existing methods of coping with unusual events. The negative physical consequences of traumatic events can be psychological consequences such as anxiety, depression, alcohol and substance abuse, suicide, and post traumatic disorder. There is overwhelming evidence that traumatic events can produce many negative physical and psychological consequences. Although researchers have extensively studied the negative effects of trauma, there has been much less attention paid to the possibility of the positive impact of negative events. However, there is a body of literature suggesting that people exposed to even the most traumatic events may perceive at least some good emerging from their struggle, because not all posttraumatic responses are negative. This condition is called post traumatic growth. Known properties of individuals with post traumatic growth is the important emergence of stronger support for this process in the field of health care. The cur rent article summarizes concept of post traumatic growth.

Objective: The relation between posttraumatic growth (PTG) and aspects of the social context, such as social support and social constraint, continues to be unclear in cancer survivors. Social cognitive processing theory is a useful framework for examining the effect of the social context on PTG. In theory, support interactions may either facilitate or hinder cognitive processing and thus lead to different PTG outcomes. The current study tested the hypothesis that emotional support and instrument...

Abstract Background/Purpose Posttraumatic growth (PTG) is a positive psychological change, or benefit, as a result of a major life trauma and/or loss. The role of emotional intelligence (EI), social support, self-efficacy, posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS), and resilience in PTG was evaluated in parents of children undergoing a surgical procedure for congenital disease. Methods A questionnaire survey was conducted in 208 parents of children undergoing inpatient surgery for correction of conge...

This longitudinal study examined the role of coping strategies and posttraumatic growth (PTG) on the psychological adjustment to breast cancer trajectory. The participants were 50 women assessed at the time of surgery (T1), during adjuvant treatment (T2) and six months after the end of treatment (T3). Women completed questionnaires assessing coping strategies, PTG and psychological adjustment (psychological quality of life, anxiety and depression). Results showed that the greatest impact of brea...

Purpose There is growing evidence in psycho-oncology that people can experience posttraumatic growth (PTG), or positive life change, in addition to the distress that may occur after a cancer diagnosis. Many studies utilise existing PTG measures that were designed for general trauma experiences, such as the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory. However, such inventories may not take into account life changes associated with a crisis specifically in a health-related context.

Abstract Objectives Posttraumatic growth (PTG) is frequently reported after the strike of a serious medical illness. The current study sought to: 1) assess the relationship between degree of cardiac “threat” and PTG one-year post-hospitalization; and 2) to explore the association between PTG and healthcare utilization. Methods In a cohort study, 2636 cardiac inpatients from 11 Ontario hospitals completed a sociodemographic survey; clinical data were extracted from charts. One year later, 1717 of...

Objectives: Finding positive changes in the aftermath of breast cancer (BC) may protect women against impaired adjustment. This study examines posttraumatic growth (PTG) in a sample of women receiving treatment for BC and explores the buffering role of PTG on the links between perceived impact of BC and emotional distress and quality of life (QoL). Methods: Seventy-eight women receiving chemotherapy (n = 57) or radiotherapy (n = 21) completed the Portuguese versions of the Posttraumatic Growth I...

Only recently have researchers begun to empirically examine positive outcomes such as posttraumatic growth in adolescent cancer. This article examines associations between posttraumatic growth, coping strategies, and psychological distress in adolescent cancer survivors. Adolescents who finished cancer treatment 2 to 10 years prior (N = 31) completed self-report measures of posttraumatic growth, coping, symptomatology, and disease-related characteristics. Younger age at diagnosis and less use of...

This cross-sectional study investigated attachment style, coping strategies, social support, and posttraumatic growth (PTG) in 54 cancer survivors. Secure attachment was significantly associated with active coping, positive reframing, and religion, and these were all associated with PTG. Insecure types of attachment and social support variables were unrelated to PTG. Regression analysis suggests that positive reframing and religion as coping strategies may mediate the relationship between secure...

This study examined existential emotion predispositions to guilt, shame, and fear of death and stress-coping strategies as predictors of posttraumatic growth in parents of infants hospitalized in a neonatal intensive care unit (mothers, N = 85; fathers, N = 73). Existential emotions and coping strategies explained 46% of the variance in posttraumatic growth in mothers and 20% of the variance in fathers. Quadratic shame and positive reappraisal in mothers and positive reappraisal in fathers made ...
