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).
