Trauma & Transformation: Growing
in the Aftermath of Suffering
Richard G. Tedeschi, Lawrence G. Calhoun
This book is a powerful and intelligent consolidation of an extensive body of research on positive outcomes that have followed horrendous suffering. Biases are challenged and hope ignited as a process of growth following trauma is documented and outlined. Case examples and quotations, as well as research and clinical work, articulate the coping and growth process and show how compassion and understanding is cultivated.
