Description

Promoting Positive Processes After Trauma merges the research and clinical application pertaining to the common experiences of trauma among clients with many different presentations and diagnoses. The book examines positive processes as they operate within trauma and considers the intentional development by the clinician of these positive processes with individual clients. Promoting Positive Processes After Trauma is structured after the cornerstone tenants of positive psychology resilience, hope, forgiveness, post-traumatic growth and benefit-finding, meaning making, and spirituality. The following positive psychology processes are detailed as exemplars of the various modalities within which researchers understand positive psychology processes: growing out of developmental trajectories; cognitive, emotional, and intra-personal processes; interpersonal processes; and community- and contextually-defined processes.
