Post-Traumatic Growth – How to Build Resiliency in Recovery
Explore why some people are more resilient and what can be done to build resiliency and avoid post-traumatic stress syndrome. Resilience is adapting to hardships, adversity and tough turns in life. All of us are faced with these events in our lives. Some are small; some are very significant. One’s mental health, usefulness and quality of life are greatly enhanced by becoming skilled at resilience and recovery. Post-traumatic stress disorder is not the only outcome from trauma; some people experience post-traumatic growth (PTG).
The online version of this course is interactive. You will be posting your insights and reflections and participating in discussion threads with your classmates. There is work to be done weekly and timely participation is important.
