PTG Radio Interview with Dr. Richard Tedeschi

From WHYY’s “Voices In The Family”

With soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, we hear a lot about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Psychologists are also interested in a different response to trauma; post-traumatic growth. Many survivors report personal growth and development in the aftermath of trauma – and say they have found happiness and fulfillment they wouldn’t have known otherwise. Dan Gottlieb will discuss this newly emerging field, and explore what we can learn from it. Joining Dr. Gottlieb will be Dr. Richard Tedeschi, who coined the term “Post Traumatic Growth.” He is a professor of Psychology at UNC Charlotte.
