Editorial Reviews

Review

"...Calhoun and Tedeschi bring together the leading theoreticians, researchers, and practitioners in the subdiscipline called posttraumatic growth (PTG). The importance of this field is that it already includes a rich history of empirical research demonstrating that posttraumatic growth can be operationalized, assessed, and enhanced. The editors and authors of this text do an excellent job of identifying the major conceptual and clinical hurdles facing this fledgling field of study. Adding to the value of the text are the numerous chapters devoted to various aspects of trauma and their positive manifestations following different kinds of negative life experiences. This book makes a very important contribution toward the evolution of clinical psychology. Many people have had their symptoms reduced but still seek meaning and purpose. PTG provides a scientific framework to help them on this journey."

- Frank Masterpasqua, in PsycCRITIQUES, Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books

This book was wonderful. It makes the science of the "other side of suffering" crystal clear. I am so glad I picked it up and will be picking up other titles from this author.
