Surprising to the researchers, only 17% of the participants reported PTG before psychotherapy (pre-treatment). However, they did find that the participants reported significantly more PTG post-treatment than pre-treatment. Geena is particularly
interested in the differences between children and adults experiencing PTG and plans to further this research with her time in the lab.
