Finding a Way Through Trauma? Exploring Post-Traumatic Growth

Finding a Way Through Trauma? Exploring Post-Traumatic Growth

This event has been cancelled

Following my recent return to the University, I will explore how a combination of my research and clinical training and experience has led me to develop an interest in the different routes people experience following trauma.

In Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, rather than focusing only on the ‘stress’ part of the trauma, there is now increasingly a focus on the possibilities for development, hope and growth as well. As a developing field, many questions and controversies remain!

The seminar aims to provide an insight into how my interest in this area is developing through a combination of research and clinical experiences, with a particular focus on experiences of rehabilitation/ recovery following acquired brain injury or single- event traumas in an Adult Mental Health setting.

Rather than the outcome of a long period of research work, instead, this seminar aims to chart the ‘slow burn’ of a developing interest. One which highlights the role for clinically relevant research that aims to maintain rigorous research methods and remain relevant and genuinely applicable to real clinical settings.
