Neurodiversity recognizes and respects neurological differences as any other human variation. These differences, while presenting unique challenges, also hold the potential for significant personal growth and contribution to society.


Did you know that...

  • approximately 70% of the world’s population has been exposed to a traumatic life event (Benjet et al., 2016, Kessler et al., 2017)?


  •  3/4 of adults over age 65 have experienced at least one traumatic event during their lifetime, and depending on the definition of a traumatic event, the figure may be even higher (Mills 2011)?


But did you also know that...

“30-70% of individuals who experience trauma also report positive change and growth” - Joseph and Butler, 2010


This introductory guide to Post Traumatic Growth captures the positive psychological changes experienced amidst or after struggles with highly challenging life circumstances.


PTG is the “experience of individuals whose development, at least in some areas, has surpassed what was present before the struggle with crises occurred. The individual has not only survived, but has experienced changes that are viewed as important, and that go beyond the status quo” (Tedeschi and Calhoun, 2004).


Our response to adversity

PTG comes with multidimensional changes in the belief system, life goals, and self-identity. It is constructive and mindful as it helps us stay grounded and focus on what is happening now rather than dwelling in the past.


When adversity strikes, people often feel that at least some part of themselves, be it their views of the world, their sense of themselves, and significant relationships, are shattered. Those who try to put their lives back together exactly as they were remain fractured, pained, and vulnerable, but those who accept the breakage and build themselves anew become more resilient and open to new ways of living.


This 16 page guide explores the different dimensions of Post Traumatic Growth.
