Being resilient and optimistic is a great goal

Trauma can cause suffering and long-lasting effects; however, trauma can also cause people to create positive change. Studies have shown that more than 50% of people who experienced trauma had a huge spiritual and emotional growth, which was powerful and changed their life. Their traumatic experiences caused them to find a positive path they might never have ventured down.

Can People Do More Than Heal from Trauma?

Trauma is complex, and how an individual responds to trauma can dictate their experience. Much like overcoming any difficult challenge, it takes persistence and patience. With the right approach, support, and care, many individuals can find growth following a traumatic event.

  • Trauma is not always the end sometimes; it is a new beginning
  • Trauma forces change, and while change is scary, the change can be very positive
  • Growth from trauma requires healing first, and while there will be challenges, it allows the opportunity to find new meaning in life
  • With trauma care in the right environment, with the right mindset being encouraged, people can become the best versions of themselves

Can Both Positive and Negative Things Happen at the Same Time During Trauma?

  • Not everything that happens during a traumatic event is negative
  • The combined effects, both positive and negative, during and after trauma can work hand in hand to create a better outcome
  • Emotional and spiritual growth occurs because of trauma
  • As people are suffering from the negative effects of their trauma, they can also feel positive things at the same time

What Are Positive Changes That Can Happen During Trauma?

  • A sense of purpose
  • A sense of the meaning in life
  • Greater appreciation for life
  • Increased self-esteem

Does Post Traumatic Growth Happen?

  • People who have moderate PTSD can also have post-traumatic growth
  • Resilience is a key factor in post-traumatic growth
  • People with post-traumatic growth have better health and are far more functional
  • Peer interaction and public service following trauma create a positive outcome for everyone in recovery
